No Certificate Templates could be found error

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -

Hello TechyV buddies!

I had come across about a problem when I have browsed the web enrollment page because I was doing a little Active Directory Certificates Services (AD CS) testing. And the error message is this:

No certificate templates could be found.

You do not have permission to request a certificate from this CA, or an error occurred while accessing the Active Directory.”

Can you help me configure the problem that I have encountered?

I really need help here guys.

Thank you!

Hello Canyon,

To resolve that issue, follow the steps below:

  • You will need to view the Active Directory dNSHostName attribute on the following object: pkiEnrollmentService. To find this object, check the following locations:

    • CN=CertificateServer,CN=Enrollment Services,CN=Public Key
    • Services,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=MyDomain,DC=com
  • To be able to see the dNSHostName attribute, you will have to use ADSIEdit.msc or LDP.exe.
  • After that you will have to edit the file to make the value for sServerConfig same as the value for the dNSHostName attribute.
  • If there is a user who wants to request the certificate, you will need to restart Internet Explorer so as to allow the new credentials to pass to the CA.
