No Certificate Templates Could Be Found Error

I was doing a little Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS) testing in the lab. I came across the following error when browsing to the web enrollment page, “No certificate templates could be found. You do not have permission to request a certificate from this CA, or an error occurred while accessing the Active Directory.”

Searching around online I found plenty of articles & posts on this error but none of the solutions fixed my issue. After three days of troubleshooting here’s what worked for me.

Being a lab at some point I had changed the Authentication settings in IIS on both CertEnroll & CertSrv to Anonymous Authentication Enabled & Windows Authentication Disabled.

When I changed them back to the defaults which are Anonymous Authentication Disabled & Windows Authentication Enabled I stopped getting the error.

    I do not believe you should be requiring authentication on CertEnroll. That’s where the CRLs are published.

    Man, that helped! I do not know how, but I got the Auth permissions inverted exactly as yours. All numerous articles in Internet turned out advising some nonsense.
