0x800094801 Certificate Issue Error

0x800094801 KB ID 0001843


Whilst attempting to get a certificate from a Windows server running certificate services, I got the following error:

No Certificate Template Error 0x80094801

The request contains no certificate template information. 0x80094801 (-2146875391 CERTSRV_E_NO_CERT_TYPE) Denied by policy module 0x80094801, The request does not contain a certificate template extension or the Certificate Template request attribute.

Solution 0x800094801 Error

Well that’s a descriptive error, as this is a certificate request I’ve created on third party piece of hardware, I’m not surprised there’s no template information. The only way to specify which template you want to use for the certificate issued is to resubmit the command via command line.

certreq -submit -attrib "CertificateTemplate:TEMPLATE-NAME" "C:\Folder\Request-file.csr"

0x800094801 CertReq no template error

You will be prompted to select a certificate services server, then you will be asked where you want to save the certificate.

Cert Services Issued Certificate 0x800094801

You can now use the issued certificate.
