Hi All - I'm not sure where to start, I added the roles Certification Authority, CA Web Enrollment and Certificate Enrollment Web Service.  Basically what I'm trying to do is a domain level certificate for a VBA project.  I'm not sure where/what steps I need to take to generate the certificate and then install it on everyone's machine - possibly through GPO.

I went on the /CertSrv on IIS but it only generated a personal certificate.

Thanks!
Zack

It may be a bit mor ecomplicate, but depends, what you intend to do.

For VBA code, you can create a codesign certificate to stamp the code with an author. One possibility is to use a public codesign cert from one of the public certification authorities, or you can use your own CA to create such a certificate.

You may copy the existing code singning template to create a new template (als you have more possibilities, add permisisons to the template and then allow the CA to issue this template. If everything is setup in the right way, you can reauest a cert based on this template (with the cert mmc). For using custom cert template, you need a enterprise version of Windows Server. Otherwise ou can use only the default templates.
