SOLVED – Migrating from SHA1 to SHA2 your CA and much more

I had a 2008 R2 CA enterprise root server with SHA1, I could not issue a certificate with sha2 becaus root certificate not support that.

So I had to switch / migrate to the new algorithm, and in that process i also migrate CA to win 2016 server.

For switch migrate only sha1 to SHA2 on existing 2008 server you only need to execute this command and renew root CA certificate

cmd> CERTutil -setreg ca\csp\CNGHashAlgorithm SHA256
