i have the following issue. I've created a self-signed certificate in order to connect to LDAP\AD over SSL. When i test it with LDP, i am getting prompted to connect a smart card. After i cancel several times, the connection is established. The Event Viewer generates the following error:

Log Name: System Source: Schannel Date: 7/19/2017 12:58:36 PM Event ID: 36870 Task Category: None Level: Error Keywords:

Just had exactly the same issue: Check the personal certificate store of your local user. Most probably there are client authentication certificates in there.

In my case had my laptop client authentication certificates installed. My RDP client was automatically configured to map the smart card "Local Resource" to my VM in Azure, which caused my local certificates to be copied to my VM. After deselecting the smart card mapping and deleting the certificates from the server, the issue was fixed.
