Setting up certificate email notifications

Email notifications are sent to the listed accounts based on the settings on the General tab. See Setting certificate notifications. Notifications are also sent for broken certificates. See Configuring certificate protection.

Click Email Addresses.

Click Save.

Configuring certification authority

When searching for Certificate Authority (CA) certificates, you can employ the search cache instead of searching Active Directory. You can choose to cache an entire forest to maximize the speed of retrieving results, or you can choose to cache only found objects in Active Directory to quickly retrieve the object again from the cache for a certain amount of time.

1
Select Configuration | Certificate Configuration.
2
Click Certificate Authority.

Full

The entire forest (users and computers with CA certificates) is cached in memory.

Set the cache refresh rate. By default, the cache is refreshed every 20 minutes.

Minimal

Only objects that are found during the search are cached. If you search for the object again, the object is found first in the cache. The object is removed from the cache after 20 minutes.

Configuring certificate protection

Certificate protection validates that the certificate details stored by Active Administrator match the certificate details installed on the computer. When this feature is enabled, any differences found are reported as broken certificates and email notifications are sent to the recipients on the certificate email list. See Setting up certificate email notifications. Email notifications are also sent when broken certificates are repaired, fail repair, or are overriden. See Managing broken certificates.

1
Select Configuration | Certificate Configuration.
2
Click Certificate Protection.
NOTE: You also can manually check for broken certificates by clicking Sync when viewing certificates. See Viewing certificates. Certificate Protection must be enabled.
