  •   ILM Knowledge Bit

    ILM uses the wldap32 libraries to make the LDAP over SSL calls to eDirectory. Here are a number of knowledgebase articles concerning using Windows LDAP API over SSL:

    In short: you need to add the certificate of your Novell eDirectory server to the certificate store of the ILM Service Account.

    Choose to place the certificate in the Trusted People store on the Local Computer by browsing and choosing show physical stores. Also, you need to make sure that the certificate is trusted: i.e. you either trust the certificate, or it depends on some other CA that is already trusted - if the certificate is not trusted, ILM will refuse to connect over SSL to eDirectory even though other LDAP browsers may allow you to connect over LDAPS.
