Hi, I am new to SSL and Active Directory fields.  I'd like to know if anyone can tell me STEP-BY-STEP on how to generate a self-signed certificate for a 2003 Domain Controller and how to install it.  Thanks in advance.

You mean self signed certificate for Exchange or CA certificate for Domain?

I would recommend you first go through Certificate,services & its implementation guide, because installing certificate in domain which is going to affect all the user & application w/o knowledge can be dangerous.

To Awinish:

    The reason I need to install a self-signed certificate on a Domain Controller, not Exchange is that I could test LDAPS.  Thanks.
