Hello,

I would like to enabled LDAP secure (636) so a external third party can do AD lookups for account validation.

I currently have an existing third party cert which is valid on the existing DC (windows 2008 - where the lookups are being directed too) being used for the Radius. Can I use the same one?

I'm  not sure you can utilize an existing certificate unless "Server Authentication" was chosen during the original certificate request (see below).

Thank you

It is indeed enabled and located under the personal certificate folder on the DC.
