I am getting these error messages on our Domain Controllers, Server 2012 R2, how do I get rid of them.
I do not have a CA installed on the domain controllers.  It is a single site.
I tried everything and they will not go away.
thanks

There is a distinction between errors and warnings. And some warnings cannot be resolved if the infrastructure is not in place. If you aren't going to deploy ADCS then you accept that these earnings exist. It pretty much books down to that.

What are the ramifications if I install a CA?
Are you telling me CA has to be installed?

The ramifications of installing a CA are significant and should be thoroughly planned.

I am telling you that resolving the warnings requires installing a CA. I am *not* saying that you *have* to resolve those warnings. That is an environmental decision that you have to make based on your business, security, and internal IT goals.
