Hello,
Our certificate server is only issuing certificates for server authentication and not user authentication.  How can I force certificates to be issued allowing this role?
thanks

I boils down to what application is requesting it and the template you have defined on your CA.
Items like, EFS, Secure Email and and general Client Authentiation are a few user based authentications

On your CA, you'll need a template for those.

Load up your Certificate Authority MMC and target it at your CA.  Select Certificate Templates and check to see if you have User templates assigned.  If not, right click the Certificate template node and select "New Certificate Template to issue", then select the template you which to issue.

Thanks.  User is assigned.  I am trying to get IIS default website to request a certificate that will do both client and server authentication.  The certificate that gets issued however will only do server.  Any ideas?

IIS is hardcoded to request only the Web Server template which is Server authentication only.  You have to manually issue a "User" or custom template then install it on IIS.
