Procedure

  1. Ensure that Windows Support Tools are installed on the domain controller (DC).
    The Support Tools setup (suptools.msi) can be found in the \Support\Tools directory on your Windows Server CD.
  2. Select Start > All Programs > Windows Support Tools > Command Prompt. On the command line, type ldp to start the tool.
  3. From the ldp window, select Connection > Connect and supply the local FQDN and port number (636). Also select the SSL.
    If successful, a window displays and lists information related to the Active Directory SSL connection. If the connection is unsuccessful, try restarting your system and repeat this procedure.
