I need to pass IIS certificate authentication on Windows Server 2012. The root cert haven't got any revocation lists but I'm getting exception:

The revocation function was unable to check revocation for the certificate

After searching, I found solution to disable revocation check by using CertUtil command:

certutil –setreg ca\CRLFlags +CRLF_REVCHECK_IGNORE_OFFLINE

and getting

CertUtil: -setreg command FAILED: 0x80070002 (WIN32: 2) CertUtil: The system cannot find the file specified.

Any ideas?

  • Could you clarify what certificate you're talking about ? Client ? Server ? Where does the error occure ?
