  4. Verify that the certificates in the certificate path are stored accordingly in:
    • Trusted Root Certification Authorities
    • Intermediate Certification Authorities

Import certificate to the local machine certificate store

As the Printix Service (PrintixService.exe) runs under the local system account, the certificate used for Secure LDAPS connection, must be in the Local machine certificate store on the users’ computers. If any of the certificates in the certification path are only stored in the Current user certification store, then Active Directory authentication will not work.

  • Local machine certificate store
    This type of certificate store is local to the computer and is global to all users on the computer. This certificate store is located in the registry under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE root
  • Current user certificate store
    This type of certificate store is local to a user account on the computer. This certificate store is located in the registry under the HKEY_CURRENT_USER root.

To resolve this, the certificate file must be installed on each computer:

  1. Right-click Trusted Root Certification Authorities, select All Tasks and select Import…
  2. The Certificate Import Wizard opens. Select Next.
  3. Browse to and select the folder with the certificate file.
  4. Select X.509 Certificate (.cer;.crt) and select All files.
  5. Select the certificate file and select Open.
  6. Select Next.
  7. Select Browse.
  8. In the Select Certificate Store check Show physical stores.
  9. Scroll to the top and select Trusted Root Certification Authorities.
  10. Select Local Computer, Select OK.
  11. Select Next.
  12. Select Finish.
