Have the following, 2012 R2 server host, with 2VM's one being a PDC (2012 R2 server) the other exchange (2012 R2 server, exchange 2013). On the PDC under tasks is "Post Deployment Configuration - Configure the federation service on this server" which I'm not exactly clear how to proceed.

Is this needed for an install of 2012 R2 Sever running as the PDC which is not an application server or sharing information with another PDC?

ADFS is only needed if you plan to Federate Exchange (or other applications such as Lync or SharePoint) with another entity. That entity could be another company or a cloud service such as Office 365.

If you aren't doing any of that, then you may have accidentally installed ADFS. If that is the case, remove it as a role.

thank you, I thought this was the case (or something along the lines of this) however intwined with AD and exchange never hurts to ask first.
