In my Windows 2012 R2 cluster I just copied the "Computer" template and in the new one set it so the user can input all data. Domain Admin has rull rights to the template. All DC's are in one site yet when I log into the web interface https://servername/certsrv the template is not listed? Yet if I go to the GUI an manually request the cert via the wizard it fail stating it is not in AD this may be from the fact i had the option to publish to AD select?

Why isn't the template showing up in the web interface?

I am a bit confused as to your process and naming.  Can you be a bit more specific?  Is the cluster the cert server?

Here is my issue.. I have DMZ server which I need to mange via SCCM and need to get a computer cert on them. Since they do not have direct access to the internal CA server I created a new computer template that allows the user to type in all information for this request. I am logged in with my Domain Admin account and the Domain Admin group has the right to enroll for the cert yet I do not see if on t he drop down with access the site  https://servername/certsrv  to request the cert..

An y thoughts I why the cert is not not listed as being able to publish? Is this because it is marked for the user to import information in the request?

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I have been thinking about it, and will need to give it some more thought and research.
My knee jerk reaction is that the CA (Servername) does not see it, but I will see what I can find....

I tried all suggestion and nothing is working. I even tried to create a exact clone of the computer template restart service etc and it will not show up yet when you go to certmgt.msc -> and request a cert you can select the template... Now about a month ago I did migrate my CA from Widnows 2008 to 2012 and this is the first new template that I created

I found I was able to get the template to be listed as published by doing it via command line as outline in the following article:

Does Windows 2012 have a issue publishing version 1 & 2 templates via the GUI?

I can't say, but it seems it does.  I hope I was helpful, if not giving the direct answer.  Good to know it works!
