WSUS Certificate Server

During an install of the WSUS role on a Server 2012 R2 machine, the WSUS Certficate Server service was somehow set to start automatically. The WSUS Certificate Server is called by the API when a certificate-based operation is required. So, when the Operating System tried to start this service automatically, it generated errors.
Normally, this service should be configured as Manual and it should be stopped.
