When Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) tries to communicate with Active Directory, SSL Handshake exceptions result. It use to work fine up until today and all of a sudden SSL connections to the LDAP server no longer work.

Problem getting InitialDirContext: javax.naming.CommunicationException: simple bind failed: faq01.obj.example.com:636
[Root exception is javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX
path validation failed: java.security.cert.CertPathValidatorException: timestamp check failed]


The SSL certificate on the LDAP server just expired.
