  • Event ID: 36870, 36872 appearing every morning at the same time

    Date:06/20/06
    Time: 8.54
    Type: error
    User: N/A
    Computer:SERVER1
    Source: Schannel
    Category: None
    Event ID: 36870

    A fatal error occurred when attempting to access the SSL server credential
    private key. The error code returned from the cryptographic module is 0x6.

    Date:06/20/06
    Time: 8.54
    Type: Warning
    User: N/A
    Computer:SERVER1
    Source: Schannel
    Category: None
    Event ID: 36872

    No suitable default server credential exists on this system. This will
    prevent server applications that expect to make use of the system default
    credentials from accepting SSL connections. An example of such an application
    is the directory server. Applications that manage their own credentials, such
    as the internet information server, are not affected by this.

    Windows 2003 Enterprise Server was rebooted, latest windows update installed, no SSL certificate installed. This a domain controller with active directory,
    DDNS, DHCP, Backup Exec. These events just started appearing about 5 weeks
    ago for no apparent reasons.

    Please help

          Thank you for your reply. Still having the event error after add network service, administrator and system with full control to the MachineKeys folder. No certificate is installed on the server. No IIS is running or installed. (PS: One thing I remember is that the event start occurring a day after I installed a new HP laserJet on a workstation.)

            On windows 2000 workstation where I installed the HP Laserjet, I noticed that the system event is reporting an error of 10009 every 20 seconds(DCOM was unable to communicate with the computer Server11 using any of the configured protocols). I looked around HP Website and found a fix.

            FIX: At a command window from the directory \windows\system32 run the command:hpbpro.exe -RegServer and if the problem persists run hpbpro.exe -Service. This fixed the error at the workstation. This also fixed the error at the Server which were #36870 and #36872
