I need to setup LDAPS on my 2008 R2 DC to do SSO with a company. I am also interested in using it for a secure connection on-site between my workstations and AD. Is this a pretty complex setup? How would I go about doing it?

You need for that CA (Certificate Authority) or cert from 3rd party company. If you fullfils this requirement then follow with this Microsoft article at

I am willing to purchase a cert from a 3rd part company, but from my experience with SSL certs for web sites, the 3rd party company asks for the CSR and the web server it is being used with. How would you determine which web server, when there is no web server?

Also, I have never seen "MY certificate store" on any computer. Where is that found on Windows XP and 7?

Another question in addition to my previous questions is once the SSL Cert is installed, you do not have to force everything to use LDAPS, do you? Once I get it working, will all of my other computers stop authenticating until I get them working with LDAPS or can I use LDAP in conjunction with LDAPS?
