Standalone root CA - do I need to use the capolicy.inf file?

Hi there,

I am currently planning a PKI implementation for a client who wishes to use
certificates primarily for Exchange, OCS and SharePoint. It is possible it
will be used for other purposes in the future.

My plan is to install a standalone root CA which I will turn off, and
install a subordinate Enterprise CA, according to what I think are MS best

My question is - do I need to use a capolicy.inf file when I create my
standalone root CA, or can I do without it? What are the advantages and

Thanks in advance.
