Server 2016 Certificate Authority and SCUP

Thought I'd throw up a blog entry about an issue I encountered last night. I am in process of moving my home lab over to a complete server 2016 environment and used it as an opportunity to start fresh with it all... I noticed when I went to set up my Certificate Authority so I could set up System Center Updates Publisher that the certificate never showed up in the list.

Server 2016 appears to enable the "require CA Certificate Manager approval" by default. I don't recall Server 2012 R2 or 2008 R2 doing this, hopefully this saves someone some time!
