The following certificates are valid for up to five years. However, these certificates are never valid longer than the Root CA certificate is valid.

- Enrollment Agent
- Domain Controller
Microsoft Certificate Server 1.0By default, certificates that Microsoft Certificate Server 1.0 issues are valid for one year. The validity period of a root Microsoft Certificate Server CA certificate is five years for Certificate Server 1.0. The validity period of a non-root Microsoft Certificate Server CA certificate is controlled by the issuing CA. Certificates that your Certificate Server issues will expire no later than the same time that your CA certificate expires.
For example, if there are only two years left on your CA certificate, issued certificates will be valid for no more than two years, even if you set the registry to issue five-year certificates.
