    I need to enable SSL on the domain controller for LDAP over SSL on port 636 using a 3rd party certificate

    I am using AD 2003 and I know all the steps involved with using a stand-alone root MS CA to enable SSL and to automatically issue server certificates.

    However, instead of using the stand-alone root MS CA, I am exploring the option of using a 3rd-party certificate (such as Verisign) to enable SSL on the domain controller. First, is it possible to enable SSL on the domain controller using a 3rd-party certificate? Second, what steps would be involved with enabling the AD 2003 domain controller to use the Verisign certificate for LDAP over SSL connection to the directory from my application servers? How are the steps different from the normal procedure I would follow when I use the MS CA
