Now we need to locate and delete any certificates for the Host computer.
Open the Certificate console on the SCVMM server.
a. Open a new mmc and add the certificates snap-in.
b. Select the option of 'computer account' and 'local computer'.
c. Select Finish and Ok to load the snap-in.
The certificates for the Host computer can be in any of the following locations.
a. Personal Certificates.
b. Trusted People (if the host is W2K8).
c. Trusted Root Authorities (If the host is W2K3).
In each store, expand the Friendly Name field and locate the certificate[s] for the Host server that have a Friendly Name starting with 'SCVMM_CERTIFICATE_KEY_CONTAINER' followed by either the FQDN / IP address / NetBIOS name of the Host server and delete them.
Re-add the host in SCVMM which recreates the certificates as needed.
SCVMM uses BITS to transfer payload between SCVMM managed computers. These data transfers are encrypted by using a self-signed certificate generated at the time a host machine is added to VMM. If these certificates are missing or corrupted from the VMM server or managed computers, the payload deployment job can fail. Deleting the certificates and re-adding the host will cause the certificates to regenerate.
