    I have a Domain Controller running on Server 2008 R2. I have been attempting to add the Active Directory Certificate Services role and it keeps crashing MMC as soon as I click the check box for the AD CA role in the add roles dialog. I’ve been searching around online all day and trying a variety of solutions but so far nothing has worked. The only thing that I haven’t tried that I’ve seen suggested is copying MMC registry keys over from another working server. I haven’t done this because I don’t have access to a similarly configured domain controller to copy from right now.

    *Full disclosure – I am not an IT professional. I am an automation engineer that has been tasked with setting up and maintaining our lab network – so don’t assume I know anything. :) *

    I would much appreciate any thoughts or suggestions anyone may have.

    The server manager log shows this:

    5628: 2017-10-04 15:00:01.205 [Provider] System changed since last refresh: False

    at Microsoft.Windows.ServerManager.CertificateServer.CAManager.UpdateModel(Boolean certificateAuthorityAdded). Exception: ‘Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt.'[/CODE]

    And when MMC crashes, the problem details dialog shows this:
