    Go to Certificate Authority Service

  2. Click the CA manager tab to go to the Certificate authorities page.

  3. In the Filter field, select Pool in the list.

  4. Click the name of the CA pool in the list.

Alternatively, you can view the CAs in a particular CA pool from the CA pool manager page by doing the following:
