In our lab we have a Domain Controller where Active Directory Certificate Services will be installed and a File Server both using the Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012 Operating Systems. Below is a picture of lab in HYPER-V.
Let's get our PKI installed. On DC-1 we will add a role and select Active Directory Certificate Services.
Once installation is completed our next step is to configure Certificate Authority for Certificate distribution.
When the specify credentials screen appears we will take the defaults and select next.
Select Certificate Authority and select next.
We will create a new private key and click next.
