Machine certificate not found - Host Checker policy

I am trying to do a host checker policy to check for a valid machine certificate from our AD CA at the role mapping level. This works fine for domain computer, which are auto-enrolling via Group Policy. However, for non-domain computers, the host checker policy is failing with "Machine certificate was not found".

 

For the non-domain computers, I am submitting a cert request to our CA. Then I import the certificate to the Personal certificate store for the Local Computer. I also tried importing the AD CA certificate into Trusted Root Certification Authorities in the Local Computer store.

 

Could someone point me in the right direction?

 

Thanks.

Re: Machine certificate not found - Host Checker policy

Discovered the issue was in the certificate creation. The machine didn't have the private key, which is why the Host Checker policy was not succeeding.

Re: Machine certificate not found - Host Checker policy

Are you doing any other checks on the certificate? What type of certificate request did you submit?
