I have a ca structure in place and no problems issuing certificates. By
default I see my domain controllers requesting domain controller certificates
which are stacking up in my pending request queue. What I would like is for
the domain controllers to stop issuing requests until that time I wish to
implement them. Right now I am ending up with thousands of requests each
day. It appears the DCs are continuously requesting certificates. What is
the best way to prevent this? Thanks!

Try to change Autoenrollment group policy on the Domain Controllers OU - see

Right, I did this but didn't look closely enough. Indeed the Win2003 servers
are no longer sending requests. My problem is the Win2000 servers are still
requesting certificates. Is there a setting that can be applied that will
keep them from requesting certificates. Thanks in advance!
