It's not good until it works :-) Some OSes are more picky than others
when it comes to accepting certificates. There are many more parameters
than "the chain is okay". I don*t know if you are working in an eduroam
context or not, but our EAP server cert recommendation pages might help
in any case. See here:

And the "is not an NPS server" nonsense is unrelated to the certs, IIRC.
Don't recall which option to set/unset in the client from the top of my
head though, sorry.
