I hope you realize that the DN in your certificate, as displayed above, is
not quite valid. It appears that you entered the value "Dieter
Kluenter,ou=partner,ou=users,o=avci,c=de" for your CN attribute. This is
quite different from actually having a DN with those components present as
RDNs. This certificate would be a problem for most PKI systems, as well as
real X.500 servers, since LDAP DNs are reversed, relative to the X.500 data
