Windows root certificate program members
- http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931125
12/21/2012 Revision Note: The KB 931125 package posted to Windows Update and WSUS on 12/11/2012 was intended only for client SKUs, but was also offered for Server SKUs. Since some customers reported issues after installing the package on Servers, the KB 931125 updates for Server SKUs were expired from Windows Update and WSUS. We recommend that you sync your WSUS server and approve the expiry. If you already applied the update and are encountering issues, please read the information below. If you need assistance recovering, please contact Microsoft Support. The automatic root update mechanism is enabled on Windows Server 2008 and later, but not on Windows Server 2003. Windows Server 2003 supports the automatic root update mechanism only partially, equivalent to the support on Windows XP. Since the root update package is intended for Windows XP client SKUs only, it is not intended for Windows Server SKUs. However, the root update package may be downloaded and installed on Windows Server SKUs, subject to the following restrictions... Server Administrators who install the root update package on Windows Server SKUs should make sure that the certificate count does not exceed the limits described in KB 931125 and KB 933430*. If you install the root update package on Windows Server SKUs, you may exceed the limit for how many root certificates that Schannel can handle when reporting the list of roots to clients in a TLS or SSL handshake, as the number of root certificates distributed in the root update package exceeds that limit. When you update root certificates, the size of the list of trusted CAs increases significantly, and the update may cause the list to grow too long. The list is then truncated and may cause problems with authorization..."

Clients cannot make connections if you require client certificates on a Web site or if you use IAS in Windows Server 2003
