Configuring IM Server To Use SSL In Connecting To DSEE LDAP (Doc ID 2802222.1)

We are trying to enable SSL communication between the IM server and the Oracle DSEE LDAP server.

Referencing document is here.

"LDAP Security" only refers you to the Sys Admin Guide section on LDAP.

And that document does not seem to have any information about enabling SSL.

The Configuration Properties section has a list of LDAP settings such as "" and "iim_ldap.usessl".

However, trying to set those properties to use the SSL port (636) and the usessl option to 1 results in the server failing, constantly rebooting, and outputting an error to the console upon startup.

xmppd.log has following errors:

The documentation provides information about adding a certificate for the Glassfish application server but is unclear about setting up a certificate for the IM server itself.

The document "Instant Messaging SSL LDAP Errors (Doc ID 2122311.1)" talks about using imconfutil to set up LDAP Replicas, but upon following the recommended solution, no errors are output, but the server still tried to connect via unsecure port 389, not 636.

This is a single IM server acting as both multiplexor and server in a development environment.
