Cert Error 36780 Office Communications Server 2007

One of the hardest thing in OCS 2007 implementation is certificate. It keep return errors all the time so you must be careful in every step in it.

While I was in OCS STD implementation I faced a event ID 36780.

I have tried installing multiple certificates, and am having issues with an Schannel event log error .I see the following errors in the event log:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Schannel
Event Category: None
Event ID: 36870
Date: 12/27/2007
Time: 3:50:18 PM
User: N/A
Computer: OCSSRV
Description:
A fatal error occurred when attempting to access the SSL server credential private key. The error code returned from the cryptographic module is 0x80090016.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

This problem occurs because of a limitation of the Certificates snap-in.

When you use the Certificates snap-in to copy a certificate together with a private key to the local computer store, the private key is not copied.

This happen when assign certificate you obtain to OCS ( Server Authentication ) to IIS to have secure SSL session.

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, import the certificate together with the private key to the local computer store. To do this, follow these steps:

a. Expand Certificates (Local Computer), and then expand Personal.
b. Right-click Certificates, click All Tasks, click Import, and then click Next.
c. In the File name box, type the file name that you specified in step 2e, and then click Next.
d. In the Password box, type the password that you specified in step 2d, and then click Next two times.
e. Click Finish, and then click OK.
