Thank you Philippe for the answer.

You was right.
That was the problem.
I corrected this point, renew my LDAP certifcate and there's no more error
I had to test deeply now, but I am optimistic

I can't remember if i adjusted this parameter a year ago with my old Debian
sarge, but obviously I would had to.

Again, many thanks.
