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.

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.
