Testing of the installation and configuration can be performed by browsing to the NDES/SCEP/MSCEP webpage, entering the service account credentials, and confirming the presence of a challenge.

  1. Open a web browser and navigate to http://<servername>/certsvr/mscep_admin/ where < servername> is the name of the server running NDES/SCEP/MSCEP. If confirmation and testing is being run from the NDES/SCEP/MSCEP server, the < servername> can be “localhost”.
  2. Enter the NDES/SCEP/MSCEP Service Account username and password if prompted.
  3. The webpage shows a thumbprint and a password if configured properly. If a problem exists with either the authentication of the Service Account or the template, an error displays.
