The key3.db and cert7.db files are a hangover from the netscape
ldap server that became iplanet and SunOne, and are in the form
the Sun ldap client wants to see. You can create these using
/usr/dt/bin/netscape on one of the clients, but can re-use the
resulting files on all the clients to that particular ldap server.
The expiry time is set when you create the initial certs at the
server end, so can be set to many years if you prefer.  They work
fine with the openldap server.
