The question is about Windows Server 2019 , Certification Authority Server Role, users and computers receiving automatically user and computer certificates without any action from the user of the computer.
I have done the configuration via Group policy and wanted to ask :
Do the default Certificate Templates ( User, Computer) work with certificate autoenrollment or do i have to duplicate and issue different templates for that purpose?
If the default templates do not work , can someone explain why?

Regards!

    Hello @Historical_Swimming

    Yes this should work. In case it doesn't work for you, I would recommend going through the official articles in order to ensure all the actions were performed to configure it.
