Wireless cert using GPO

Thomas N
Thomas N asked
I was given a wireless certificate to install for our workstations from our network team. They are the ones who setup our wireless in our building. They are separate from my group. I need to use GPO to install it. Does anyone know which location I should install it and what settings i should use? Right now we have certs in "public key policies/trusted root certification authorities". Is this where the wireless cert should go?

you should have 2 certs their root CA cert AND the issued cert.
I would put it in the machine's personal store

check the certificate path

To add to DJ's comment  you use the Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Public Key Policies to manage your certs for your domain.

Here is a screenshot outlining it.  
You will need to add the Root CA that issued the cert for the WIFI to the Trusted Root Certification Authorities.
