2012 R2 RDS Environment with a 2008 R2 CA?


I am trying to get a 2012 R2 RDS environment up and running.  A lot of the instructions I found describe having a 2012 certificate authority in the environment as well but all I have is a 2008 R2.  I followed the instructions that I found on a few websites like this one this one and this one but using my 2008 R2 CA so I know some of the options were wrong.  When I went back to my first connection broker and tried to obtain a cert, I got the message "the request certificate template is not support by this CA."  Do I need to have a 2012 CA?  Or is there something that I am missing to get off the ground with a 2008 R2 CA?

Thank you in advance.

Well I'm dopey...missed a step.  I created the template but forgot to do the Certificate Template to Issue.
