NOTE: To effectively correct this problem, follow these steps:
In this scenario, Server A currently houses all certificates and is used as the export server (this can be a Microsoft Windows NT or Windows 2000 server). Server B is the failing import server that has certificates that have been imported from Server A.
NOTE: Server A and Server B can be the same computer.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article. This problem was first corrected in Windows 2000 Service Pack 2.
