Can not enable new Certificate Templates on Windows 2008

I can not enable new Certificate Templates on my Windows 2008 Enterprise Subordinate Ent CA. I need to create a custom certificate template for our OCS phone integration.

I can create the template ok in the Certificate Template Console. But I can not get the template to show up in the list of cert templates to enable.

Here is my Domain controller and CA setup:

DC01 - Windows 2003 STD
DC02 - Windows 2003 STD, Enterprise CA
DC10 - Windows 2008 Enterprise Subordinate Ent CA
DC20 - Windows 2008 STD

I upgraded DC10 a few months ago from Windows 2003 to 2008. We used to be able to create these cert templates before. As we don't need to create templates often, We didn't notice until we needed one.

Why can I not get the template to show up in the list of cert templates to enable?

You need to configure the template as as 2003 minimum supported CA instead of 2008 supported CA.

That didn't work. I had to set up a Windows 2003 Enterprise server as a sub-ordinate CA to get it to work.
