Certificate requeset processor - object already exists error

07-10-2005, 02:24 AM

I am providing the things which we have setup here so that you can
easily understand our problem. We have setup Microsoft PKI
Infrastructure. One as root CA which is not connected to network,
other enterprise CA which is connected to network and has active
directory and iis installed on the same system.

I am trying to generate a new request with the command. The command
uses the request.inf file which contains the things needed for
certificate. The command is

“ certreq – new certreq.inf temp.req “ . This command
gives me the “certificate request processor: object already exists:
0x8009000f “ error when I try to run the command again even when I
have deleted the old request file “temp.req”:.

I have searched the net for debugging the “object already exists:
0x8009000f” error.

And I tried the following articles also.

PRB: Error Message "0x8009000F = Object Already Exists"


You receive error message 0x80090016 or error message 0x8009000f when
you try to schedule a task

I have searched Microsoft and Google with “certificate request
processor: Object already exists” . The Microsoft site does not show
anything and Google results are not helpful to our problem.

Any pointers or links to solve this problem would be very much

Thanking you in advance.

Warm Regards,
