In some situations, IIS caches the CRL and does not automatically grab the latest CRL for revocation. This can happen in realms using ActiveX plugin from SecureAuth to validate certificates or in realms validating Java certificates.

To force IIS to check for the updated CRL, run the following command as an administrator:

certutil -setreg chain\ChainCacheResyncFiletime @now
