That's already explicitly stated in the slapd.conf(5) manpage.

If so, I'm confused as to why it
failed for me originally.
I have no idea, it works for me.


   Try issuing two certs for your replica.  One for the "server"
   services, one for the "client" service.

   Sign them both by the same Root CA, or two different intermediary CAs
   (which you can daisy chain), but differentiate them with Netscape
   Certificate Use extensions for your own reference

You're assuming he even has a CA cert. From the looks of it, he's using a single self-signed cert for everything. The Admin Guide already tells you to use a CA cert and separate server and client certs, but some people just don't seem to bother reading or following docs. All the documentation in the world is useless if nobody pays any attention.
