I have a windows 2003 certificate authority whose certificate was about to expire.  From the MMC, I renewed the certificate, but when the old certificate expired, the problems began with user authentication issues for our wifi setup.

A network admin had me create a new a certificate request using a base64 encoded PKCS #10 file through the certificate server website, but no luck after he installed it on the wireless side.

I see the new certificate with its new date well into the future, but users are reportedly receiving "eap type not configured" errors in the logs.

In active directory, I have  "Renew expired certificates, update pending certificates, and remove revoked certificates." enabled.  no dice

Any ideas?

A mismatch exists between the trusted root CA that issued the RADIUS server certificate specified in the IAS remote access policy, and the trusted root CA specified in the selected EAP type in Wireless Network (IEEE 802.11) Policies.

1.In Group Policy Object Editor, open Wireless Network (IEEE 802.11) Policies.


2.In the details pane, right-click the applicable wireless policy, and then click Properties.


3.On the Preferred Networks tab, in Networks, select the corresponding wireless network, and then click Edit.


4.On the 802.1x tab, in EAP type, click Settings, and then in Trusted Root Certification Authorities, select the certificate that matches the IAS server certificate.
