Re: openldap-2.0/TLS certificate error

i know you're all focusing on the next 2.0 release, so my appologies for
belaboring the issues i'm having with TLS queries.  question: should I be 
able to do an ldapsearch -Z query, or has this not been implemented yet in
the current state of the 2.0 development?  i've taken Mark's advice and gone 
though and created a self-signed CA certificate that i've used to sign a 
certificate request but to no avail.

here are the steps that i'm using to create the certificates (which comes
from the appendix of an article on SSL: http://www.certco.com/b2b/ssl.htm).

1) create a self-signed CA certificate:

openssl req -new -x509 -keyout /usr/local/ssl/private/CAkey.pem -out

2) create a certificate request:

openssl req -new -keyout newkey.pem -out newreq.pem -days 360

3) sign certificate request

cat newreq.pam newkey.pem > new.pem
openssl ca -policy policy_anything -out newcert.pem -infiles new.pem

4) remove passphrase from key:

openssl rsa -in newkey.pem -out newcertkey.pem

5) update TLS options in slapd.conf:

TLSCertificateFile      /usr/local/ssl/certs/newcert.pem
TLSCertificateKeyFile   /usr/local/ssl/certs/newcertkey.pem
TLSCACertificateFile    /usr/local/ssl/private/CAcert.pem

6) startup slapd

/usr/local/libexec/slapd -h "ldap:/// ldaps:///" -d 9

7) execute ldapsearch with -Z option:

ldapsearch -b o=mp3.com,c=us -Z uid=scottk

thanx again for your assistance.
