Error in event log: EVENT ID: 1007, SOURCE: IIS-ISSManager, Level: Error

IISWMSVC_STARTUP_UNABLE_TO_READ_CERTIFICATE

Unable to read the certificate with thumbprint ‚0efba9399f2d1bc978b9761a19002806cc823778’. Please make sure the SSL certificate exists and that is correctly configured in the Management Service page.

Process:WMSvc

User=NT AUTHORITYLOCAL SERVICE

Solution

A common cause of this problem is that the WMSVC certificate has been deleted from the certificate store on the server so now Management Service has no certificate assigned causing a problem.

Open IIS (Internet Information Services) Manager and find Management Service
