Deploying Certificates to Windows systems

The Management utilities can be used to deploy certificate to windows target systems.

Create a sub folder in the  Apps folder called certs and copy the certificate file you wish to deploy

You need to get the certmgr.exe from the Microsoft Developers Kit

Copy that certmgr.exe into the apps\certs folder

Create a batch file to run the silent installation


mkdir c:\tmps

xcopy /Y \\\apps\certs\*.* /s  c:\tmps

cd c:\tmps

certmgr -add -c syamtrc.cer -s -r LocalMachine root

cd \

rd c:\tmps /S /Q


change to your network path

change to you certificate name - if the cert name has spaces use " " around the name

Create a Third Party Deployment Template to run teh batch file
