Error 'Configuring certificate for web services' errors when you installing the LDMS product on a windows server
This can be caused by a GPO blocking the creation and self-signing of the certificates that we use and create during the installation process:
This GPO option prevents the certificates from getting created correctly causing the installer to error.
Another potential cause is related to a misconfigured virtual directory in IIS for BridgeIt. If this is the case, you will see the following error in the install log:
Error: Unable to find virtual directory (Program.AddSTSAndEncryptionThumbprintToWebConfig())
Remove the GPO from targeting the LANDESK LDMS core. In case of the second cause, open IIS, expand default website and select the BridgeIt virtual directory. Go to advanced settings and ensure the path is set to C:\Program Files\Landesk\Bridgeit.
