I have been really busy with this and checked everything on the web and had everything right according to all the guides but still i got problems.

 

all the usual errors messages, certs cant be used or mutual authentication cant be done etc…

so the fix

Ok First, make sure you create the appropriate templates

see here –> http://weblogwally.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!A913F865098E0556!488.entry

 

Next create a request.inf file with the following bits in it

[NewRequest]

Subject="CN=ComputerName"

Exportable=TRUE

KeyLength=2048

KeySpec=1

KeyUsage=0xf0

MachineKeySet=TRUE

[EnhancedKeyUsageExtension]

OID=1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.1

OID=1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.2

 

next type from a command prompt certreq –new –f request.inf certreq.req

no submit the request via the advance request portal via your https://CA01/certsrv

and then download and install your cert….

 

obviously you still have to follow the steps in the guide…. regarding momimport and agent installation so follow those bits carefully.

 

this cause me a lot of hassle so hope it helps someone 😀
