Excessive amount of Event 36886

Posted on 2011-10-11

I have an issue of a DC logging an obscene amoun of 36886 event:

No suitable default server credential exists on this system. This will prevent server applications that expect to make use of the system default credentials from accepting SSL connections. An example of such an application is the directory server. Applications that manage their own credentials, such as the internet information server, are not affected by this.

I have made research of the issue, and was able to identify that the issue relates to lack of SSL Authority in the environment and this error can be ignored. My concern is however, that there are about 20 events displayed in the system log per second. This happens on a single Domain Controller in the Domain, which does not hold any FSMO Roles and is a Global Catalog.
How would I find out what generates this many events?

    There's no authority in the environment. I know where those messages are coming from, just need to find out what is beating up against it.
