How to manage Windows "Server Certificate Hostname Validation"

Path Finder

When deploying apps with the deployment server, I receive the following warning:

"Server Certificate Hostname Validation is disabled. Please see server.conf/[sslConfig]/cliVerifyServerName for details..."

It appears as though Splunk wants host certificates for authentication on all deployment clients.  With over 10K Windows systems, generating PEM formatted certificates for use in Splunk seems onerous.  Does anyone have a solution for how to manage this?  It would seem that the Splunk UF for Windows should be able to read the Windows certificate store for this authentication, but I've not found that solution.
