I was in the process of demoting and decommissioning an old 2003 Domain Controller when I determined is was the certificate authority for this domain.  This network has two 2008 R2 DC's functioning so I decided to move that role to one of those servers.

I followed the migration procedures detailed in this TechNet article and all seemed to be fine until I tried to verify the migration by launching the certmgr and requesting to  automatically enroll and retrieve certificates.

The results seem to indicate Certificate Auto-Enrollment has not been enabled.

When I select the option to Show All Templates, all options are greyed out - status:  Unavailable.  Did I miss something?

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you

I believe I needed to wait for the changes to take effect.  I rebooted the server waited a few hours and all was in order
