Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1276237
documentation missing to set windows console in ssl mode.

Description of problem:
We see this in upstream documentation:
By default, the console expects your key and cert database files in $HOME/.389-console. On Windows, this is usually something like C:\Documents and Settings\\.389-console. So when you use the NSS command line utilities like certutil and pk12util, use the -d argument like this:
certutil -A -d "C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\.389-console" -n "CA Certificate" -t CT,, -i cacert.asc -a
for example, to add the CA cert from the file cacert.asc encoded in ASCII (PEM) format. Now your Console running on Windows should be able to use https and ldaps.
It could be nice to have this in RHEL documentation, administration guide. We have it for RHEL console but not for Windows in:
We have this in
7.3.7. Managing Certificates Used by the Directory Server Console
but it oculd be nice if we could mention just where to install console certs on windows.
If it is there, I am sorry
The update for Directory Server 10.1 is now available on the Customer Portal.
