Read the slapd.conf(5) manpage again, look for the TLSCRLCheck keyword.
Doesn't exist in man manual. When did that come? I'm running OpenLDAP
I'm guessing 2.3, since it is the man page there. You may want to

True. On older OpenSSL distributions the TLSCRLCheck keyword will not be
recognized, and should trigger an error when parsing slapd.conf.
Once you get it working, it's a bit of trouble to keep it working,
unless there's some way I don't know to import the CRL without
restarting the server. Since the CRL will regularly expire, you
can't just let it go - even if you have nothing to add to it, you
have to update it and restart. You can avoid that particular problem
by making an exception for X509_V_ERR_CRL_HAS_EXPIRED, in
tls.c:tls_verify_cb(), but that will help only if your CRL is not
I don't think it's OpenLDAP's fault, OpenSSL X509_STORE_add_crl()
wouldn't update an existing CRL anyway. I proposed a fix to that,
