CDP container in Active Directory required if not part of AD?

in flag

We have a Microsoft Active Directory Certificate Services Enterprise CA.

After installing the service, an AD container is created within CN=CDP,CN=Public Key Services,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=ad,DC=example,DC=com

Our CDP is http-only. There is no LDAP path added. Should I keep or remove this container?

cn flag

Keep it as is. Just do not use (as you already do) and keep it empty.

Alright. Wasn't sure if the AD computers query it, while the ADCS server perhaps never updates it.
cn flag
If there are no references to CDP container in certificates, no one will query it.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
