imageConsider the following scenario:

  • You configure native mode as site mode on a System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2) site server.
  • The anonymous access feature is turned off on the certificate services Web site.
  • You use the enroll.exe utility to install certificates automatically for some Windows CE 5.0-based mobile clients.
  • You enter a user name and password in the enroll.cfg file that is used for authentication.

In this scenario, the enroll.exe utility does not read the user name and password in the enroll.cfg file and you are prompted to enter a user name and password manually. Therefore, the certificate is not installed automatically.

For a hotfix to resolve this issue see our latest Configuration Manager KB article below:
