To re-enroll all certificate holders

  1. Open Certificate Templates.

  2. 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.
