Default password sync documentation

I'm trying to follow the documentation to setup synchronisation to
windows active directory.
>From the documentation:
2. Create a new cert8.db and key.db using certutil.exe on the Password
Sync machine.
certutil.exe -d . -N
ln -s slapd-serverID-cert8.db cert8.db
ln -s slapd-serverID-key3.db key3.db
If I execute that in a new directory:
# certutil.exe -d . -N
# ln -s slapd-rhds-cert8.db cert8.db
ln: creating symbolic link `cert8.db' to `slapd-rhds-cert8.db': File exists

I don't follow why the ln -s should be executed? Why not start with part 3:
On the Directory Server, export the server certificate using pk12util.
pk12util -d . -o servercert.pfx -n Server-Cert

Because SSL is already configured on this linux machine, so I guess I
can use the server-cert from that cert8.db?
Can someone clarify/confirm this? Thanks!
