Now Duplicate the Webserver and Workstation Authentication template

SCCM IIS Certificate

Duplicate Web Server Template, Name it “SCCM IIS Certificate” , Enable “Supply in the Request” and Give Read- Enroll Permission on SCCM IIS Servers group as shown in screenshots.

SCCM DP Certificate

Duplicate the Workstation Authentication Template, Name it “SCCM DP Certificate”,  Give it Read-Enroll Permission on SCCM IIS Servers group, and  Enable “Allow Private key to be exported”.

SCCM Client Certificate

Duplicate Workstation Authentication Template, Name it “SCCM Client Certificate”,  Enable “DNS name” and Give Read- Enroll- Autoenroll Permission on Domain Computers as shown in screenshots.

Navigate to the Root of Certificate Authority, click on Certificate Template, click new, click on Certificate Template to Issue.

Select the newly created 4 Certificates for SCCM.


GPO – AutorEnroll Sccm Workstation Cert

We enabled Auto Enrollment  in Sccm Workstation Authentication template so that clients can request certificates automatically.
