In most cases, I'd expect this to be just a configuration question,
i.e., to set the identity and certificate parameters that the server
side expects. I'm not sure what the exact NPS requirements here are, so
it is a bit difficult to comment on what could be missing or incorrect.
Anyway, the reason for denying authentication was "Authentication failed
due to a user credentials mismatch. Either the user name provided does
not map to an existing user account or the password was incorrect."
which does not more like something being different in identities rather
than something missing from implementation.
