Symptoms

Consider the following scenarios.

Scenario 1

  • On a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2, you use the Group Policy Management Console (MMC) snap-in to connect to a domain controller.

  • You locate and then enable the following policies in a Group Policy Object (GPO):

    • Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Public Key Policies\Certificate Services Client – Auto-Enrollment

    • Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Public Key Policies\Certificate Path Validation Settings

  • You update the GPO and then make sure that the policies are enabled successfully.


In this scenario, the Trusted Root Certification Authorities setting is set silently and unintentionally in the background. Additionally, this setting cannot be removed from the GPO even after you set the Certificate Services Client – Auto-Enrollment setting and the Certificate Path Validation Settings setting to Not Configured.

Scenario 2

  • On a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2, you use the Group Policy Management Console (MMC) snap-in to connect to a domain controller.

  • You locate and then enable the following policy in a Group Policy Object (GPO):

    • System\Internet Communication Management \Internet Communication settings\Turn off Automatic Root Certificates Update

  • You update the GPO and then make sure that the policies are enabled successfully.


In this scenario, the Trusted Root Certification Authorities setting is set silently and unintentionally in the background. Additionally, these settings cannot be removed from the GPO even after you set the Turn off Automatic Root Certificates Update setting to Not Configured.
