We have about 50 workstations we use EFS on to encrypt a SQL 2005 database. I am in the process of building a new one and when I got to the point of encrypting the database I get this error:
Recovery policy configured for this system contains invalid recovery certificate
Fine and dandy, I enlist the help of Google and the first hit leads me to Microsoft

The thing is, the certificate for the EFS account is not expired. I have tried renewing the key, I have tried getting a new one and nothing is working. According to Google I am not alone. Certificates is not my strong suit. I do have a CA and it is issuing keys. I don't know where to go from here and I need to get this working ASAP.
Thanks in advance.
