Pop Quiz: Windows Server Active Directory CS Autoenrollment

Applies to the "Configuring Active Directory Certificate Services" objective of Exam 70-640.

Q: A company's network security team needs to ensure that domain computer accounts can use autoenrollment certificates.

Which of the following certificate types does not support autoenrollment?

  1. Version 1
  2. Version 2
  3. Version 3
  4. Version 4


Answer is A. The autoenroll permission is not available in version 1 certificate templates. A version 2 or version 3 template, or duplicate a certificate template to create a version 2, version 3, or version 4 certificate template is required in order to use the autoenroll permission.

Quick Tip: To assign certificate templates to an enterprise CA, open the Certification Authority snap-in, click Certificate Templates, on the Action menu, point to New, and then click Certificate Template to Issue, finally, select the certificate template that is enabled for autoenrollment.
