Dear All,

We have been asked to configure LDAPS over TLS/SSL
Unfortunately, we have never done this before and we are looking for guide to help dummies like us :)

We have set up a new domain : demo.lab
The domain controller, DC1, is running Windows 2008 R2.
DC1 has the following roles: AD DS, DNS, File Server, Web Server

Could you tell me what are the steps to configure LDAPS over SSL/TLS on Windows 2008 R2?
Is there any LDAPS with 2008 r2 for dummies?

Some article says we have to set up a server with Active Directory Certificate Services role.
Can we add this role to the current domain controller?

Kind Regards,
