When attempting to connect a host to a Certificate Enrolment Policy Server it worked but had the following complaint;

Error-2-URI No Friendly Name

WARNING: The URI “https://{Host-Name}ADPolicyPRovice_CEP_{Method}/service.svc/CEP” was validated sucessfully but there was no friendly name returned by the remote machine.

Locate the Friendly Name section > Enter a descriptive name for your CEP portal > OK.
