Re: ldaps access with RedHat 7.3 installation

Is the ldap server actually listening to ldaps?
run netstat --inet -anp | grep slapd
and see if slapd is listening on port 636.
If it's not then you need to make sure slapd is started with the -h
"ldap:/// ldaps:///" argument.

Also note that there are RPMS available for openldap 2.1.22 for RH 7.3
up on http://www.open-it.org/  well they haven't updated the news yet,
but on their FTP site ftp://ftp.open-it.org/pub/redhat7.3/ there are
srpms and rpms for openldap 2.1.22. I suggest using the SRPM especially
if you have cyrus-sasl2.1.x installed and are wanting sasl support as
their RPMS binaries for 7.3 do not include sasl support.
