You also need to ensure that your rootDN is "within" the directory i.e.
if your server suffix is (say) "ou=dept,dc=example,dc=com" then the rootDN
must be e.g. "cn=Manager,ou=dept,dc=example,dc=com".

Also, 2.1 actually checks whether the certificate is self-signed or not
(it doesn't have to be a genuine CA - you can set up your own).

I have a utility that inserts the appropriate classes as necessary (along
with a lot of other checks) - beta testers are welcome.
