    I had to move my CA from a member 2003 server to a 2003 DC. Everythign seems
    successful except for the certificate templates. I get a "Template
    information could not be loaded. Element not found." When restarting the
    Cert Services I also get the following:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: CertSvc
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 44
    Date: 1/20/2006
    Time: 2:09:43 PM
    User: N/A
    Computer: xxxxxxxxx
    The "Windows default" Policy Module "Initialize" method returned an error.
    Element not found. The returned status code is 0x80070490 (1168).
    Certificate Services could not find required Active Directory information.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at

    The Certificate Services start fine aftewards.

    The domain is 2k3 level. Both DC's I have are 2k3 SP1. I tried runnig
    adprep /forestprep and it said it is already at that level.

    Any ideas?
