The cleaver people on the Microsoft Exchange team have come up with a work around for the Exchange Management Console being soooooo slow loading with Exchange 2010!!!
The fix is dead easy:
Turn off (Uncheck) “Check for publisher’s certificate revocation” & “Check for server certificate revocation” options on the server/workstations you are starting the EMC (Exchange Management Console) on
· In Windows Internet Explorer –> Tools –> Internet Options –> Advanced tab
· In the Security section, uncheck the below two options “Check for publisher’s certificate revocation” & “Check for server certificate revocation”
The reason for the slow processing time as explained by “nawaral” who works for Microsoft is that Exchange tries to connect to the certificate revocation list (CRL) Web site. Exchange examines the CRL list to verify the code signing certificate.
So basically turning it off, it won’t examine stupid certificates anymore!!
