Assigning the certificate template to the CA
You can now assign the newly created template to the Certificate Authority. Whenever a computer joins the domain, the CA issues a certificate based on the template, and the Centrify agent downloads the certificate to the computer.
To assign the template to a CA:
- Open the Certification Authority console.
- Click Certification Authority > CA_name > Certificate Templates, where CA_name is the container for the CA you set up earlier in Preparing a computer to be a Certificate Authority (CA).
- Right-click and select New > Certificate Template to Issue. Select the template you just created and click OK.
The root CA is now set up to issue certificates based on the template you created.
