SYMPTOMS

On a Windows Server 2008-based computer, you try to duplicate a template in the Certificate Templates console. In this scenario, you may want to select the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) as the Subject name format. However, no such option appears in the Certificate Templates console. Currently, the options are limited to Common Name, Distinguished Name, and None.

RESOLUTION

A hotfix is available to resolve this problem. You have to install this hotfix on the server where you run the Certificate Templates console.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

MORE INFORMATION

Some third-party Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) applications cannot connect to a Domain Controller by using LDAP together with the default version 2 Domain Controller Authentication template because the empty subject name is not recognized. Therefore, the option FQDN is needed.

This hotfix adds an option to the Certificate Templates Console (Certtmpl.msc). After you install this hotfix, when you try to duplicate a template, the Subject name format list in the Subject Name tab is extended and has the following options:
  • Common Name
  • DNS Name
  • Fully Distinguished Name
  • None
This hotfix adds the DNS Name option.
