Auto enroll computer certifiacte

Hi all,

2012 domain windows 8.1 Ent.

Im trying to get my laptops to auto-enroll the computer certificate on my domain.  I can do the process manually, but after adding the GPO to do this automatically the GPO is applying but failing to enroll.

Does a domain user have permission to do this?

I have some problem understanding. You would like those computers to automatically request a certificate (which, what for?) What in particular did you configure in that GPO? How did you verify?

Verified by running RSOP on the machine.

Ive just noticed that If try and request a certificate manually it says "certificate types are not available". Am I missing something? I was able to do this on another machine.

Please provide me with the steps to reproduce.
What is configured, what did you expect to happen, how are you doing the request?

I have a certificate CA on my DC; with a computer certificate template. I want to enroll my laptops automatically. I managed to do one laptop manually. By opening the MMC certificates Snap-in and requesting the certificate manually. But im thinking ive missed a step somewhere? Do i need to make the template visible somehow?

Could it be that you are logged on as local user and not as domain user? In that case, you wouldn't be able to request certificates from your domain CA (at least not via GUI, I have seen that myself).

have you in the computer template or user template whichever you're requesting set it to autoenroll in your CA?
