I am trying to install computer certs for Workgroup Computers so I can enable secure RDP for PCI compliance.  I have a Windows 2012 Internal CA that is issuing certs for domain computers and I can request Web Server certs through the browser.  What am I missing to get computer certs to Workgroup servers?

Nothing, they (workgroup computers/users) have to be manually request and install the certificates issued by the CA.

Using a webbrowser navigate to http://CAserver/certsrv there you can choose the type of certificate you need and is based on the templates you approved/configured on the CA.

Once submitted, you will have a certificate to download/install.
If you have configured the CA to place requests in a pending queue, you would need to approve the pending certificate.

certreq can be used to generate a CSR that is then submitted to the CA's certsrv site for signing.

Thanks Arnold for your response.  So far I am aware of everything you have suggested but do not see a computer cert available.  Any suggestions on creating a computer cert from a template for workgroup computers?

I had to install the ADCS Certificate Enrollment Web Service and ADCS Certificate Enrollment Policy Web Service Server roles to make this work.
