Failed Cert Request with MSCEP

When enrolling a Cisco PIX firewall to the Win2K CA using
MSCEP, the request immediately goes into the Failed
Requests store with an associated error of:

Certificate Services could not process request due to an
error: The certificate is revoked.

Similarly the PIX debug shows:
CRYPTO_PKI: status = 101: certificate request is rejected

There is an old revoked certificate sitting in the revoked
store. Does anybody know how can I get around this problem
to install a new device certificate on the PIX?

Thanks for listening!

Mike.

I am not familiar with that particular error. I do know that we customers
have successfully used PIX enrollment against a Windows Server 2003 CA:

Do you see any application event logs on the CA related to the rejected
request?

Hi David,

The error from the CA that I quoted, viz:

Certificate Services could not process request due to an
error: The certificate is revoked.

has come from the application event log. I don't see any
other useful information from the certificate services
side of things other than another failed enrollment
request!

I must have a config problem somewhere but I'm following
the documentation to the letter. If only I could work out
why a previously revoked certificate is causing a new
enrollment request to fail!

Any help appreciated!

Thanks,

Mike.
