Bad enum error adding OIDs

Apr 3, 2014 at 10:20 PM

I am trying to add OIDs on a stand-alone offline root CA. I am getting an error about a bad enum:

PS C:\Users\Administrator> register-objectidentifier -friendlyname HighHardAdmin -value 1.2.826.0.1310. -oidgroup IssuancePolicy

Are you sure you want to perform this action?
Performing operation "Register object identifier with name: 'HighHardAdmin' and value: '1.2.826.0.1310.'" on Target "DRCA-SANDPIT".
[Y] Yes [A] Yes to All [N] No [L] No to All [S] Suspend [?] Help (default is "Y"): y

This is a bug. You can fix it yourself by editing Register-ObjectIdentifier.ps1 file as follows:
Locate this code part:
    $Group = switch ($OidGroup) {
        "ApplicationPolicy" {[Security.Cryptography.Oid2]::ApplicationPolicy}
        "IssuancePolicy" {[Security.Cryptography.Oid2]::IssuancePolicy}
and replace with this one:
    $Group = switch ($OidGroup) {
        "ApplicationPolicy" {[Security.Cryptography.OidGroupEnum]::ApplicationPolicy}
        "IssuancePolicy" {[Security.Cryptography.OidGroupEnum]::IssuancePolicy}
it is a typo in the enum class name.
