Domain CA won't issue certs


I was trying to make a new cert template today and it would only issue for 1 year out.  I noticed the root cert only had a date for a year out also.  So on the CA I clicked the Renew CA certificate.  This ran through without any issues.  Now when I try to request a new certificate it wont work.  It doesn't show any templates available.  If I click show all the computer certificate says "The permissions on this certificate authority do not allow the current user to enroll for certificates."  If you look at the attachment there is a little more to the error.   We didn't change anything except renewing the CA cert so I am not sure what broke.  I checked all the permissions I could find and don't see anything obvious.   Does anyone have anything to try?
Thanks in advanced.

First thought: within the CA MMC, for your CA, go to the Revoked Certificates, right click, all tasks, and Publish -- A New CRL.

If you open the properties of the CA, does it still show both the old and the new CA certificates in the general tab?

And just to double check... have you stopped and restarted the CA service?

And because changing the Root CA means a new root certificate has to be propagated thru your domain, have you tried a gpupdate /force on the web server?

I can't seem to force my test CA to renew, so I can't reproduce the problem... but still looking to see if I can find a more definitive solution.

other info... Windows 2008 R2 DC with 2008 AD.    Trying to request Public cert for web services on another windows 2008 R2 server.

awesome.  I published the new CRL and ran GPupdate /force on both machines and it seems to working now.  I am guessing it was the CRL since I restarted the server once already which should have forced the GPupdate anyway.  Thanks for the help.
