Certificate Services client auto-enrollment Event ID 6

This is a RODC MS Standard 2008 R2 server.
The error:
Automatic certificate enrollment for domain\user failed (0x8007003a) The specified server cannot perform the requested operation.
This is different than the Event ID 6 for RPC availability.

I have checked the certs and they appear fine but not sure if I am missing something.

Any help would be great because it is the RODC in my DMZ so many services outside rely on it for auth.

For auto-enrollment check that the certificate template is used by a CA and that the CA service is running on this machine and reachable via RPC
Just telnet CA server from RODC on TCP 135 and check if it succeed ?
Also ensure that High TCP ports are opened from RODC to CA server (1024-656535 or 49152-65535 if CA server is 2008 and above)

Thanks, telnet was good and ports are opened. Not sure but thought about deleting 509 certs in registry. Thoughts?

Not sure why you require certificate on RODC ?

Anyways, you can directly delete certificate from Certificate Personnel store on RODC

Also you can request certificate for user manually through Certificate MMC console \ personnel certificates on RODC

Just ensure that you have root ca certificate installed on RODC in Trusted root certification authorities
