Could not find a certificate that can be used for the Extensible Authentication Protocol

Hello everyone, I configured certificate verification in Azure, and then imported the certificate into the computer account and personal account, but when I use the VPN link, it seems that I can't find a certificate that can be used for an extensible authentication protocol.139181-image.png

    Hello @Dominic Nancy ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Platform. Thank you for reaching out & hope you are doing well.

    If you have already followed this troubleshooting doc and it is still not working, you may have to create a new certificate and it should work.
    Before you go ahead and create a new certificate, make sure to delete the existing network connections on your client machine by browsing to:
    Delete the existing GUID folders.

    Then follow the below docs to generate & install a new certificate to your client machine, add the root certificate data to your Azure VPN gateway and then download the fresh VPN client from Azure portal (VPN gateway) & install it:

    Note: When you import the client certificate, do not select the Enable strong private key protection option.

    If you still face the same issue, we may need to investigate further offline.

    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
