A Guid object that identifies the FIM CM request for which to perform the recover operation.


A read-only collection of CertificateRequest objects that are required to perform the recover operation.


A String object that contains a password to protect any Personal Information Exchange (PFX) results that are returned from the call.


A String object that contains a comment to be recorded in the event history for the recover operation.

Return Value

A read-only collection of Certificate objects that resulted from the recover operation.


PFX format, also known as PKCS#12, is used to retrieve certificates that are archived at the certification authority (CA), certificates generated on the server, or external certificates that are obtained during recovery. The Certificate object supports many formats that represent the certificate information, such as PKCS#7, PFX. This call requires the caller to perform the interaction with the smart card to write the returned certificate and possibly key data.
