I think I know the problem you are talking about - you are trying to access the /certsrv IIS directory from certain machines and it doesnt work/is not accessible/ the activex component doesn't install correctly.

I never managed to get it working from the browser in OSs after Winxp/2003 (i often need to issue a code-signing cert for development work) but a fairly simple workaround is to use the Certifcates Snap-in in MMC to view (and request by right cliking in the right hand side pane) certificates .

see this page for details on how to do this.

Hope that sorts it for you.

Finally, I walk to the user's PC, start certmgr.msc and enroll the cert manually. It work, but I need temporary grant the user right to domain admin, otherwise it pop-up RPC unavailable.

Assuming its not a firewall issue have you checked that the rpc services are not disabled,should be manual or automatic?
Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

yes, it just worked on the user with Doamin Administrators right only.
I think need to spend time to check the Group Policy and allow the user to have rights access
lojk.Net and Infrastructure ConsultantCommented:
Create a domain group called 'machine administrators' and join that to the local administrators group on the pc. Then you can add people in and out of the domain group without having to grant local admin rights insividually to the machine.
