I have spent over 2 hours trying to create a 512 bit cert for my dev engineers to use on BLE devices, (Low Energy Bluetooth).

I have created the template and modified every way I can think of but get these type of errors:

Certificate enrollment for Local system failed to enroll for a Computer512 certificate from PAD01.Awarepoint.com\PAD01 (The signature of the certificate cannot be verified. 0x80096004 (-2146869244)).

Certificate enrollment for Local system failed to enroll for a Computer512 certificate from PAD01.Awarepoint.com\PAD01 (Cannot archive private key. The certification authority is not configured for key archival. 0x8009400a (-2146877430)).

Active Directory Certificate Services could not process request 312 due to an error: Cannot archive private key. The certification authority is not configured for key archival. 0x8009400a (-2146877430).  The request was for AWAREPOINT\PAD01$.  Additional information: Error Archiving Private Key

I have read some blogs and tried to change the parameters of the CA and the template but no success.

I am not very adept at certs etc. can anyone help on this?

CA is on Windows 2008 DC.
