Certificate Autoenrollment on XP Embedded


  • Currently I’m running a project for implementing Network Access Control. Therefore I need to autoenroll certificate's onto thousands of thin clients running XP embedded. Microsoft TechNet say that Certificate Autoenrollment is only supported for XP Professional and not for XP Embedded ( Autoenrollment group policy settings may only be applied when using a Windows XP Professional or Windows Server 2003 computer.).

    I managed to request a new certificate from the CA-server logged in as a local admin. But doing thousands of thin clients at separate locations will be an endless job. Is there another way to autoenroll certificate's? Maybe by running a script? Please share your opinion, experience or ideas!
