imageThe System Center Configuration Manager team blog has another great post, this one on requesting an AMT provisioning certificate with a Windows Server 2008 certificate authority.  I have the intro below but you can read the entire post here.

 

With the December documentation update for the Configuration Manager library, we posted a new step-by-step guide for out of band management, to help customers deploy the PKI certificates with a Windows Server 2008 CA (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd252737.aspx).  One of the main differences with this guide from the equivalent step-by-step that used a Windows Server 2003 CA was that it didn't have a procedure for requesting an AMT provisioning certificate from an external (public) CA.  In the Windows Server 2003 CA step-by-step, we said follow any instructions provided by the CA company; otherwise use the Web enrollment procedure to create a certificate request file.
