Certificate password length in Windows Server 2003
For example, if a certificate is created in Windows 7 that has a password of 32 or more characters in length, Windows Server 2003 will be unable to open this certificate. Attempting to use it will return the error:
Cannot open certificate store: The specified network password is not correct. (56)
In order to prevent this issue from occurring you must ensure that certificate passwords do not exceed 31 characters in length.
