On a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Certificate Authority, I am able to get User Certificates to start Auto Enrolling by making Copies of the User Certificate in Certificate Templates.  I made one called "UserCert2003" and one called "UserCert2008" according to their minimum Server CA (We have XP and 7 machines).   I then created the represented Templates in the Certification Authority tool.  

User certificates started to auto-enroll like expected, but the Certificate Template column only shows the dotted number and no name like other items do.  

Attached is what I see in the issued, I have blocked out Requester name to protect the innocent. Certificate Template Numbers

When you copied the user Template, on the properties, did you specify a new Template Display name on the General Tab?  You should still be able to edit those properties.

Yes. It has the names "UserCert2003" and "UserCert2008" respectively.

Do you have "Certificate TEmplate Name" in the Extensions  Tab inclusions?

This was using a Server Core edition.  I reloaded and configured it with a Full, and it shows up fine now.  Unfortunatley I had to go to the Full edition because of a different product that would not work quite right on it and wasn't fully supported on it.  

Thank you for the attempts to help.

Thanks. I never would have figured out that you were on Core Edition. Glad you stopped me from investigating further.
