Yeah. Microsoft don't make it easy. Have a careful look in the event 
viewer logs on the client.

Ensure the relevant CA is in both the machine and user cert stores.

Having said that, the debug (which you've trimmed, sigh) suggests to me 
it isn't even *getting* as far as the certs.

Check again that you've configured the client correctly.

Messing with the certs won't help. It's a client problem. The client is 
where you'll need to fix this.
