V2 and V3 templates are not available if an inplace upgrade was performed from a Windows Server 2003 or 2008 Certification Authority (CA) to a Windows Server 2008 enterprise CA.
The enterprise features are missing because the underlying SKU is standard.
To fix the problem, follow these steps:
1. Close the Certificate Services MMC snap-in.
2. Run the following commands from an elevated command-line on the CA computer:
certutil -setreg ca\setupstatus +512
net stop certsvc
net start certsvc
When you re-open the Certificate Services MMC snap-in, you will be able to assign V1, V2 and V3 certificate templates to the certification authority.
