RE: LDAPS: ldapsearch working, back-ldap failing?

Okay. Egg on my face.

Thank you for the recommendation to build a newer release. Although it
didn't end up fixing the issue per se, it forced me to dig further, to
conclude that it wasn't related to the OpenLDAP version (I built a newer
one) or NSS (I built it against OpenLDAP as well). As it turns out, it ended
up being an selinux issue where the process couldn't read the CA cert.

So, it turns out it was my fault, but thank you very much for the driver to
look further.

I vaguely remember a bug in this old version regarding TLS CA cert

Try to set the LDAPTLS_CACERT env var when starting slapd or better use a
newer release which has a fix for this.

Ciao, Michael.
