Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So i have set up an openldap server using this guide here. It worked fine. But as i want to use sssd i also need TLS to be working for ldap. So i looked into and followed the TLS part of the guide.

And i never got any errors and slapd started fine again.

BUT. It does not seem to work when i try to use ldap over tls.

root@server:~# ldapsearch -x -ZZ -H ldap://83.209.243.253 -b dc=daladevelop,dc=se
ldap_start_tls: Protocol error (2)
    additional info: unsupported extended operation

Ganking up the debug level some notches returns some more information:

So no good information there neither.

In /var/log/syslog i get:

Jun  6 08:55:42 master slapd[21383]: conn=1008 fd=23 closed

If i portscan the host i get the following:

Starting Nmap 6.40 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2014-06-06 08:56 CEST
Nmap scan report for h83-209-243-253.static.se.alltele.net (83.209.243.253)

PORT    STATE SERVICE

80/tcp  open  http

636/tcp open  ldapssl

But when i check certs

root@master:~# openssl s_client -connect daladevelop.se:636 -showcerts -state
CONNECTED(00000003)
SSL_connect:before/connect initialization
SSL_connect:unknown state

---

---

---

And i feel like i am clearly out in deep water not knowing at all where to go from here. Anny hints appreciated on what to do or to get better debug logging...

EDIT: This is my config slapcated from cn=config and it does not mention at all anything about TLS.

I have inserted my certinfo.ldif:

root@master:~# cat certinfo.ldif 
dn: cn=config

add: olcTLSCACertificateFile
olcTLSCACertificateFile: /etc/ssl/certs/cacert.pem
-
add: olcTLSCertificateFile
olcTLSCertificateFile: /etc/ssl/certs/daladevelop_slapd_cert.pem
-
add: olcTLSCertificateKeyFile
olcTLSCertificateKeyFile: /etc/ssl/private/daladevelop_slapd_key.pem

and when doing that i only got this as an answer.

root@master:~# sudo ldapmodify -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -f certinfo.ldif 
SASL/EXTERNAL authentication started
SASL username: gidNumber=0+uidNumber=0,cn=peercred,cn=external,cn=auth
SASL SSF: 0
modifying entry "cn=config"

So still no wiser.

Everything you have posted demonstrates that the SSL part of your configuration is working correctly. Otherwise you could not possibly get LDAP-specific error codes returned by the server. Your question remains unclear. –  EJP Jun 7 at 23:20

I found the solution over at Persuading openldap to work with SSL on Ubuntu with cn=config

which links to: http://rogermoffatt.com/2011/08/24/ubuntu-openldap-with-ssltls/ that has the complete solution.
