So take out the metadata registry and use the original one only.

I'm talking about how you organize SAML metadata, not whether you use it or not. If you don't use it, then it doesn't really come into it.

cas-protocol.xml isn't the issue (that file is how you configure all these options), but you're asking about the original ServiceRegistry. No, it's not going away, nor is it a requirement to configure both, nor is it a requirement for the metadata option to be first in the registry list, which is why the warnings are showing up, it's falling through one to get to the other.
