To re-enroll all certificate holders
Open Certificate Templates.
Right-click the template that you want to use and then click Reenroll All Certificate Holders.
To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group or the Enterprise Admins group in Active Directory, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure. For more information, see Default local groups, Default groups, and Using Run as.
To open Certificate Templates, click Start, click Run, type certtmpl.msc, and then press Enter.
This procedure is used when a critical change is made to the certificate template and you want all subjects that hold a certificate that is based on this template to re-enroll as quickly as possible. The next time the subject verifies the version of the certificate against the version of the template on the certification authority, the subject will re-enroll.
