When working with an on-premises LDAP server, certain operations like AD password resets are required to take place over a secure connection (SSL). Due to this requirement, our actions will need access to your LDAP certificate. If LDAPS is not already configured in your environment, please talk with your Active Directory Administrator or consider reading the following Wiki article for guidance: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/2980.ldap-over-ssl-ldaps-certificate.aspx.
Note: Without LDAPS, you will be able to perform all AD operations with the exception of creating users or updating user passwords.
Administrator will support the detection and import of LDAP certificates. When you attempt to perform the first operation that requires a valid certificate, you will receive a message in the log indicating that a certificate is required and has been located. At this point, restart the software and attempt this operation again.
The following requirements have been deprecated as of August 31, 2015.
If your LDAPS (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) over Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) / Transport Layer Security (TLS)) is already configured, then the process will be fairly straightforward. If not, then talk with your Active Directory Administrator for further assistance.
If LDAPS is already configured, please follow this steps:
1.Export the certificate from your LDAP server. If you are not able to access your LDAP server, please contact your Actve Directory Administrator for assistance.
2.Click the Import Certificate button in the Administrator ribbon.
3.Select the *.cer file and click OK
4.The contents of this certificate will be displayed. Click OK to close this dialog and begin the import process.
5.When prompted, restart the application to complete the import process.
If LDAPS is not already configured, please talk with your Active Directory Administrator or consider reading the following Wiki article for guidance: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/2980.ldap-over-ssl-ldaps-certificate.aspx
