Script fix for error 15

Automatic certificate enrollment for local system failed to contact the active directory

I get this on a lot of systems and I am trying to locate where in the registry I can set "Do not enroll certificates automatically" as I want to make a simple script that regwrites over this setting to eliminate the issue.  If you could point me in the right direction I would be very grateful.

You'll see a key in both of those that says AEFlags set to 1, change that to 0

I'm almost positive, so try it on a test system first that gets that error before setting a network wide script.

Thanks, testing it out now.  I did find the values where you mentioned them.  Just want to confirm that changing them corrects the issue.

This is good information and I was able to create the script.  I am still having the issues even with my fix but I need to keep working it.
