Hi everyone,

I have built a Windows 2008 R2 PKI infrastructure.  The environment consists of a Root CA \ Policy CA and Enterprise CA.  When I deploy a certificate from the Enterprise CA to a computer, the certificate says 'General Purpose'.  How can I change this so the certificate that is deployed displays it is for  Computer Accounts ?

Hi CaussyR,

did you try the following;

Create a computer certificate template

Start->Run-> certtmpl.msc
Certificate1
Give the new certificate template a name, in my case, I named it “Computer AutoEnroll”

Cert2.png
Now let’s publish this certificate template

Start->Run-> certsrv.msc

Cert3.png
Select the “Computer AutoEnroll” certificate template

Cert4.png
