Failed trying to get Windows Cryptographic Context

My endpoints won't provision. When I install the EMA client I get this in the log file:

 

[2022-01-25 09:41:58.403 AM] \Agent\MeshManageability\agent\core\wincrypto.cpp:250 Failed trying to get Windows Cryptographic Context. Last error: -2146885628
[2022-01-25 09:41:58.404 AM] \Agent\MeshManageability\agent\core\wincrypto.cpp:262 Creating new EMA Agent root certificate. Last error: 0

I uploaded my certs in an effort to get the endpoints to provision in Host control mode. Before they provisioned in client control mode without problem.

Any ideas?

Hello JPxAnderson,

 

Thank you for joining the Intel community.

When you say "you uploaded your certs" do you mean your own generated certificate or a commercially available certificate from a CA? EMA currently only accept certs from 5 commercial CA

You can also look at the 3rd and 4th video. It explains where to upload the certificate during the EMA profile creating
