First of all. I am not a Microsoft-guy. I work with networks and communications.

I need to test certificate-authentication of 802.1x. For this reason I have a newly installed win2008 server (in lab environment) which is also a DC for my test-AD. I have installed the Certificate Authority-component in windows. I have also a Windows 7 client computer which I have joined my test-AD.

But how do I create and put a computer certificate to my client computer? And also a user-certificate? Is it tricky to do it automatic via GPO-policies? Or can I request a certificate manually from the computer?

Again, this doesnt need to scale. It is lab only. I dont need the most beautiful solution. I just need to put those certificates on the client computer.

Anyone?

I didnt have IIS installed. And after adding the web server role the server responds but there is no /certsrv configured.

404 - File or directory not found.

How do I solve this?

Best to uninstall Cert Services and reinstall, I would think.  If you want to keep your present configuration and any certificates already issued, then do a backup first from the Certification Authority admin tool and then restore afterwards.  If you need more help with this, please ask.

Just looking at Server Manager, you might be able to get away with just adding the Role Services: "Certification Authority Web Enrollment" and "Certificate Enrollment Policy Web Service" if they're not already there.
