4869: Certificate Services received a resubmitted certificate request

On this page

This event gets logged more than the description would indicate.  It seems to be logged whenever 

    • the Certification Authority receives a certificate request that matches a previous request that was either denied to set to pending
    • the administrator or other certificate manager Issues a pending request.  This event 4869 is logged in addition to 4887.

This event event is only logged if "Issue and manage certificate requests" is enabled on the Audit tab of the CA's properties in Certificate Services MMC snap-in and of course if the Certificate Services audit subcategory is enabled with auditpol.
