    Turn off SSL/TLS for Active Directory?

    I keep getting this on bootup in Windows Server 2012 R2. Does anyone know how to turn off SSL/TLS for Active Directory? I'm assuming that would stop this error from happening. I don't care about SSL for AD. Unless it can't be turned off? If anyone knows what to do here some tips would be great.

    Active Directory Web Services could not find a server certificate with the specified certificate name. A certificate is required to use SSL/TLS connections. To use SSL/TLS connections, verify that a valid server authentication certificate from a trusted Certificate Authority (CA) is installed on the machine.

    Certificate name: myserver.ad.mydomain.com

    Install certificate services on a non ad server, and tell the ad server to auto enroll certificate in group policy?

    Why can't I install Active Directory Certificate Services on the same AD and DC server?

    I dont really know, I tried this and it all installed correctly, however it wasnt issuing certificates properly (from memory there are 2 types of server certificate and it would only issue one type, which was not the one AD wanted), after lots of messing around I found an article saying that it wouldnt work properly when installed on an ad server, so (with reluctance) I installed it on our MIS server and everything started working.

    Scrub that, I remember now, you have to be a member of a local dcom group to request the certificate, ad servers do not have local groups or users.
