Hello - we currently use Windows Server 2022 DCs as our DNS servers. We have been mandated to look at encrypting DNS traffic to and from these servers and their respective clients.

There are a ton of articles on how to configure the Windows DNS client to use DOT or DOH but I am looking for information on how to configure the DNS Server itself running on Windows Server 2022. How do I bind the certificate etc....

Thank you in advance.

    AFAIK, this is not supported on the server side (DNS client only). More at https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windowserver/forum/all/does-windows-2022-active-directory-dns-server/b9ba1e54-385e-4192-9a9d-ad0eaffcb7ab
