I have an Active Directory Domain Controller running the following domain:
I would like to have a wildcard certificate that I could use on any server that has a domain.local address (i.e. is only available locally).
I would also like to create a Group Policy Object to ensure that all domain-connected computers automatically accept the .local wildcard certificate just like they do for *.domain.com certificates (which are issues by real certificate authorities).
Here is what I was thinking: I have installed Active Directory Certificate Authority onto my domain controller thinking that it would be able to create certificates and then I could create the GPO to accept the root authority certificate from this service.
Can I use this role for this purpose? How do I get started? I tried to create a new certificate in ADCS, but it said that something about my CSR was missing information about which "template" to use...
