bad certificate error.

I'm trying to setup TLS to be used with a simple auth.

I keep getting "alert: bad certificate error" with 2.0.23 and also with CVS. I've tried everything I could find in the mail archives but nothing seems to work. I'm on Redhat 7.2 and I use
make -C /usr/share/ssl/certs/ slapd.pem
to generate the certificate. I tried the openssl command from the LDAPv3 howto as well.

On the client side ( ldapsearch ) the error is either "local error (82)" or "cannot connect (91)".

Does anyone know what the problem can be? I generated my cert with the fully qualified domain name of the server.

The server command was
./slapd -d 4095 -h "ldap:/// ldaps://ldapxxx.eng.fit.edu" -f ../etc/openldap/slapd.conf

And the ldapsearch command was
ldapsearch -x -d 4095 -H ldaps://ldapxxx.eng.fit.edu/ -b 'dc=my-domain,dc=com' -ZZ '(objectclass=*)'

From the ldapsearch
TLS trace: SSL3 alert write:warning:bad certificate
TLS: unable to get peer certificate.
ldap_start_tls: Can't contact LDAP server (81)

From the server
TLS trace: SSL3 alert read:warning:bad certificate
tls_read: want=5, got=0

ldap_read: want=1, got=0

ber_get_next on fd 10 failed errno=0 (Success)

Any clues?
