SSIM AD Integration

SSIM can integrate with multiple AD domains (do not have to be in same forest). The documentation in the Admin guide and the official KB is sparse on how to do that though currently.

Suffice it to say I was able to connect to a Windows 2003 Enterprise SP2 (not R2), as well as a Win 2003 R2 domains, in separate forests.

The trick is to make sure those domain controllers have been assigned a server certificate (not the root cert). Verify that certificate has "Server Authentication" in the Intended Purposes column of the Certificates snapin, where it should be under Personal/Certificates. When you open the certificate in the General tab it should read "You have a private key that corresponds to this certificate."

Troubleshooting steps: test connectivity using LDP.exe from the support tools installation. Also use the following command to test from the SSIM itself: openssl s_client -connect [your DC FQDN]:636

The following guide was perfect. Make sure to note the part about exporting the cert to Base-64 encoded binary X.509 (.CER).
