When asking for client authentication, this server sends a list of trusted certificate authorities to the client. The client uses this list to choose a client certificate that is trusted by the server. Currently, this server trusts so many certificate authorities that the list has grown too long. This list has thus been truncated. The administrator of this machine should review the certificate authorities trusted for client authentication and remove those that do not really need to be trusted.
SMP trusted root CA certificate store had more than 350 certificates, causing windows to trim the list of CA certificates required for validating CEM package temporary client certificate.
Remove all extra and not required root CA certificates on SMP trusted root CA certificate store.
