Do I need to install  Enterprise CA on a Server that has ADDS installed?

I installed it on a Server that is joined to the domain, but when I try to access the Certificate Template I get the following error...

Error
I can see that the Server nwgsca is joined to the domain and the FQDN is nwgsca.nwgs.local

any ideas as to why I'm getting this error message>

If nothing serious stuff is on that server , I would suggest.
1. Remove the CA role
2. Dis-join the domain
3. Rejoin the domain
4. Install the CA role.

Yes I am

I have done it 2 time same issue.

But my question is, if the server needs to be running ADDS or can it just be a Server 2012 joined to the domain?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

CA can be installed on both , however not preferred/recommanded on server bearing role of AD. Would like to know have you followed the proper steps or if you can share the link you are following. Major part is to check and verify the pre-requisite.

Please share following :-
1. OS details
2. Link you are following .
3. When and where you are getting the error ?
Lots and lots of links are available for the PKI certificate installation .
And one thing , you can install Root CA on even a non-domain machine. [ http://blogs.technet.com/b/yungchou/archive/2013/10/21/enterprise-pki-with-windows-server-2012-r2-active-directory-certificate-services-part-1-of-2.aspx ]

Please try using same credential used for installing Root CA on the server. Hope it to be member of domain and enterprise admin.

You may follow the link to verify the configuration

I'm installing as Admin, with correct credential. It allows me to do the install, it's when I try to open the Certificate MMC that is gives me the above error.
