I have a Subordinate CA running on Windows 2016 Server - its been issuing certs until recently where I am now only ever getting the error when trying to submit a CSR:

The request contains no certificate template information.
0x80094901 (-2146875391 CERTSRV_E_NO_CERT_TYPE)
Denied by Policy Module 0x90094801,
The request does not contain a certificate template extension of the CertificateTemplate request attribute

Any help appreciated.

EDIT:

When trying suggested: https://www.ntweekly.com/2016/08/12/ca-error-when-requesting-certificate-from-mmc-using-a-scr-file/

Error:

Web Server is a listed Certificate Template under my CA Certificate Templates

  • How did you submit your CSR? – Broco Oct 2 '18 at 7:45
  • @Broco - I have tried different ways. Ultimately trying to get a certificate for my pfsense appliance. So tried the PFSense UI and then the openssl toolkit. I also tried resubmitting CSRs that were previously successful. – dross Oct 2 '18 at 7:49

    Did you check this out? ntweekly.com/2016/08/12/… – Broco Oct 2 '18 at 7:50
  • The error clearly says where is the problem: request contains no certificate template extension. – Crypt32 Oct 2 '18 at 8:00

    BTW, you have wrong template name in certreq -submit command. Certificate template attribute expects template's common name (which is WebServer for Web Server template), that is, the right syntax is: certreq -submit -attrib "CertificateTemplate:WebServer" – Crypt32 Oct 2 '18 at 8:17

I worked on this for an hour today and just figured out that "Web Server" was not a valid template and I was supposed to use "WebServer". A-r-r-rg!

Certificate retrieved(Issued) Issued  The certificate validity period will be shorter than the WebServer Certificate Template specifies, because the template validity period is longer than the maximum certificate validity period allowed by the CA.  Consider renewing the CA certificate, reducing the template validity period, or increasing the registry validity period.
