After installation/upgrade of the AF Server to AF 2014 we now get the following exception upon starting the AFServer service (via services.msc) in the EventViewer.

  •      Exception in OnStart: It is likely that certificate 'O="OSIsoft, LLC", CN=AFServer_<server_host_name>' may not have a private key that is capable of key exchange or the process may not have access rights for the private key. Please see inner exception for detail


On this and other (working) installations we cannot find the mentioned certificate. However on other servers we don't experience the same problem.
