INTEROPERABILITY ISSUE: StartTLS operation does not work for OpenLDAP server

Postby Support » Tue Jun 21, 2005 12:56 pm

SYMPTOMS

An attempt to execute a StartTLS operation for a properly configured OpenLDAP server fails displaying an “Operation failed” error.

CAUSE

There is an ASN.1 encoding bug [1] in the Microsoft LDAP API implementation which makes certain LDAP requests incompatible with the OpenLDAP server.

WORKAROUND

There is a simple working patch for the OpenLDAP server which has been suggested while discussing [2] the issue with the OpenLDAP maintainer. Alternatively, you can download a hot-fix [3] from Microsoft support.
