<br /> 0x80094801 – the request contains no certificate template information<br />


  • Use the web-enrollment service feature to request the cert. with a specified template (http://caserver/certsrv), or;

  • Run the below command on the CA:

certreq -submit -attrib "CertificateTemplate:WebServer" <Cert Request.req>

Modify your template to suit.
