    I am trying to install a new enterprise root CA on my windows server 2008
    r2 system, but the enterprise option is always greyed out. i read that i
    need to be logged in with an 'enterprise admin' account or else it will
    remain greyed out.. how can i confirm my account is 'enterprise admin'
    account.. as i know it is def a local admin.. should a local admin account
    be sufficient to create enterpreise ca?The server is just a base install
    (i.e. not a DC etc) and was originally setup and put on the domain, but
    has since been removed from the domain and left in a workgroup, as it is a
    DMZ internet facing sever, which doesnt require domain membership.Might
    the addition and removal of the server have caused some underlying
    problems.. or has anyone else got any light they can shed on why
    enterprise option is greyed out?? Thanks guys

  2. Ask in a server newsgroup.

  3. If you removed the server form the domain, you will not have a
    domain-level domain admin account to authenticate to. You might need to
    re-join it to the domain so you can authenticate properly in order to
    install the CA.
