Auto Enrollment

Hi All,

I've got a strange problem happening with certificates. I'm trying to
get LDAP SSL working. I've installed certificate services on a member
server and configured it as an Enterprise Root. When I try to
configure the Group Policy setting for Automatic Certificate Request
Settings and I choose the Domain Controller template, I get the error:

There is no Certification Authority available for the selected
Certificate Template

I see the CA listed in Sites and Services and I also see the CA listed
in the Cert Publishers security group. The CA has Domain Controllers
listed under Policy Settings...

Any ideas? What do I need to do to get this group policy setting to
recognize the CA?

Could be propagation delay. Try running gpupdate /force from the system you
are using to set group policy.

I've installed the CA on a DC now and things are working fine. I'd
like to move it again to a member server though. You suggested
running gpupdate /force, but I han't even made GP changes yet, I'm
trying to but I'm not able...Any ideas?

Dave, machines get the list of templates they can enroll for at boot time
and when group policy refreshes. Therefore, if you make configuration
changes, the machine that is supposed to enroll will not know about the
changes unless it restarts or gets policy. gpupdate /force forces the
machine to refresh policy.

Same for installation. The machine will not know that a CA has been added
until it updates.

Hope this helps.
