Configuring the "Pass Through Authentication" plugin to use SSL fails with

[19/Dec/2013:14:43:27 +0000] - ERROR<53761> - Plugins - conn=-N op=-1 msgId=-1 - Connection  Bind through PTA failed (81). Retrying...


Changes

 1. Configure the Pass Through Authentication to use SSL, e.g.

$ dsconf set-plugin-prop -p <LDAP_PORT> -w <PWD_FILE>  "Pass Through Authentication" argument:ldaps://dscc.<DOMAIN>:<DSCC-PORT>/cn=dscc
The plugin "Pass Through Authentication" is a system plugin.
Forcing this operation may cause the server to malfunction.
Do you want to continue [y/n] ?  y
Directory Server must be restarted for changes to take effect.

 

2. Confirm SSL is enabled.


$ dsconf get-plugin-prop -p <LDAP_PORT> -w <PWD_FILE> "Pass Through Authentication"
argument          :  ldaps://dscc.<DOMAIN>:<DSCC-S-PORT>/cn=dscc

3. Restart the Directory Server
$ dsadm stop .

$ dsadm start .
Directory Server instance '/<DS_INSTANCE_PATH>/<DS_INSTANCE>' started: pid=8956

 

4. After enabling LDAPS the following issues are seen in the DSCC and the error log,

<DS_HOST>.<DOMAIN>:<LDAP_PORT> - Directory Server Not Accessible
 You must grant access to this server in order to view and edit its configuration.
