Symptoms

You are using LDAP external authentication using one way SSL(636).  login to Analytics is failing. This is brand new install of OBIEE 12c, configured an additional external authentication (openldap).

However, you can login to analytics using ldap accounts when ldap is setup to not use ssl (port 389). 

This happens only, once enable ssl (port 636) user can no longer log in.

LDAP configuration work fine from weblogic console and em.  You can see  the users and groups.
