I am using the below Tomcat website to create a Certificate Signing Request for our Windows 2003 Web server running Tomcat 6.
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/ssl-howto.html
I use the following 2 commands;

1.    keytool -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA \ -keystore <your_keystore_filename>
2.    keytool -certreq -keyalg RSA -alias tomcat -file certreq.csr \ -keystore <your_keystore_filename>

It creates  a certreq.csr.

I then Open my Windows 2008 Certificate Services CA and select; All Tasks/Submit New Request
Then select my certreq.csr file.
It gives me this error;
"The request contains no certificate template information 0x80094801 (-2146875391) Denied by Policy Module, the request does not contain a certificate template extension or the certificate template request attribute".

Hi,

Sounds like you have an Enterprise CA. it was the same setup with 2003.

ECA's (Enterprise CA) require templates where SCA's (Standalone CA) can be submited through certsrv.

Typically, ECA's are sent directly to the CA. Give this a shot from commandline on the ECA.

certreq -submit -attrib "CertificateTemplate:WebServer" certreq.csr

It should be in Pending for you to process afterwards.
Cheers,
