MS Certification Authority - unable to issue a new template because not in the list of templates

This is a tough one - We are setting up a MS based CA and have reached the point where we are duplicating an existing template.  When it is completed and is going to be used for the server and client, per the  instructions, we are told to right click on the certificate templates and select "new - certificate template to issue" a list appears of the base templates but not the newly created duplicate template.

The question is how do we get the duplicate template to show up in the list of templates we can issue?

We tried showing it in AD but this had no effect.  What step(s) are we missing?

You will need to Manage the certificate first then it will list all  certificate templates  then copy the particular certificate template you want but make sure you rename it so it won't be duplicated. Further, configure this template certificate that you copied with its relevant settings (eg. expiration date, RSA 1024 bits) before you starts issuing it.

I will try this but we upon researching the issue it seems that to do this you need the enterprise version of the O/S -  that research seems surprising though since why bother including it in the OS otherwise - you can't use the templates themselves.

Where would you start off managing the certificate?

usually, below is how your duplicate template (ct) to show up in certificate template folder:

-you manage the certificate first: right click the ct then select manage - it should list all the template.
-right click the template that you need to copy and select duplicate template - ensure you name it appropriately and configure its settings, then when done close the ct screen;
-right click the ct folder and select new, this should list you the duplicate template that you have named, select it then click the ok button.
