Active Directory Certificate Services Installation Error

I got a call today from a friend that had a strange issue when opening the Certification Authority mmc snap-in. When tried to open the certification authority he got the following message:

Although this seems very serious, it is nothing other that expected. As it turns out, he was setting up a lab and part of the lab was testing the certificate services. After adding the role and features though, you have to finish the configuration. Right click on the yellow triangle on the top right of the Server Manager to get the respective prompt.

After the configuration is complete, the MMC snap-in is working as expected.
