How to associate the VDE adapter for LDAP for SSL communication with the SSL certificate - public key in the OVD Manager "Manage Certificates" section

Without this mapping, symptoms may be similar to the following example:

  • OID:
    Non SSL port: <OID_NON_SSL_PORT>
    SSL port: <OID_SSL_PORT>
  • Both the OID server certificate and RootCA certificate (used to sign the OID server certificate) have been imported into OVD. Both these certificates are encoded in Base64.
  • The OID server certificate is signed by the RootCA (in this case, Oracle Certificate Authority)
  • ldapbind/ldapsearch over port <OID_SSL_PORT> is successful to OID
  • Third-party LDAP browsers such as JXplorer and LDAPStudio can successfully connect to OID over SSL on port <OID_SSL_PORT>, so OID SSL configuration is correct.
  • From OVD, SSL connections fail to connect to port <OID_SSL_PORT>, with:
    Oracle Virtual Directory could not load certificate chain
