NPS and AD CS on the same server

Hello,

 

We are in the process of installing a certificate authority in our domain in order to issue machines certs, however we were wondering what were the best practices for installing one.

 

Would it cause a security issue to have the AD Certification Services on the same server as the NPS?

 

Thanks

That would be fine.

It is generally considered best practise to have the CA server offline and detached from the network unless it is supposed to sign certificates. However in a small enviroment that might be expensive och otherwise impossible. Using the NPS server as a CA is no problem, I've seen several organisations using that approach and it has worked perfectly.
