Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 11g, e.g.,

Successfully installed The Active Directory (AD) Password Filter on other Microsoft (MS) Windows 2008 and 2003 Domain Controllers (DC).

(Note:  Using the PW Filter from the OID 10g media on Win2k3 as a workaround to the problem outlined in <Document 1520463.1> and associated <Bug 15990599>.)

Installation of the PW Filter in a Windows 2003 R2 32bit machine fails with errors concerning the connection to the load balancer front-ending OID, and when testing with ldapbindssl.exe, it fails with the following errors:

Connecting server in SSL Mode
Checking if SSL is enabled
SSL not enabled.
SSL being enabled...
Binding ...
Ldap bindERROR
System Error Code: 1397
LDAP Error Code: 52
Error Message: Server Unavailable

Verified that the Trusted root certificate is imported.

Telnet and ping tests to the OID hostname also work, as well as ldapbind -U 2.

The same problem occurs if bypasing the load balancer and using the OID physical hostname and/or IP address.

The ldapbindssl.exe attempt is not being recorded in the OID logs, so the connection does not seem to be reaching OID.

After a failed test, this error occurs in the MS Event Viewer:

The certificate received from the remote server has not validated correctly. The error code is 0x80096004. The SSL connection request has failed. The attached data contains the server certificate.
