Any idea about 3rd party verisign certificate with GlobalProtect ?

You may be able to, but I don't know how to configure that.  We used AD CA certs, it was easier.  To sign individual certs with the purchased one, I don't think you can do that.

How did you generate user certificates from AD?

Which template did you use?

Did you generate a Gateway Certificate too?

User certificates were created from Window's Server Cert Authority - we obtain user certs this way https://domaincontroller/certsrv since that is where our certificate authority is as the moment. If you are logged in with the user then they just simply walk through the process and it add's it to their machine.

I'm not sure I understand the Gateway cert question, we generated a third party cert and specified both in the portal / gateway this cert for our server cert. I also had to use our internal root cert to handle the user cert authentication.

My question is about the type of certificate you have to issue as there are several templates on the Windows CA

I believe all you need is a user certificate.  When going to the certsrv in a web browser, logging in with the user name/password - for us just generates a user certificate.
