E-LDAP: PT 8.55.18 Unable To Connect To LDAP Server Using SSL

(Doc ID 2313877.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 25, 2017

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.55 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After upgrading to PT 8.55.18 and LDAPS started failing. This worked successfully on prior tools releases.

Receiving the following error in the Appserver Log file

Root exception is java.net.SocketException: Unconnected sockets not implemented

LDAP Error Code : -1

It seems that connection does not even reach the server. The issue happens at socket creation level, therefore SSL handshake issue is not involved. Can connect to same server using openssl and other sample java files.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1.Navigate to PeopleTools->Security->Directory->Configure Directory click
"Add a New Value". Enter <<<Dir_Config_Name>>> then click Add button.

2.Enter Connect DN credentials
Enter server and ports 389 and 636 and save.

3. Test the connectivity. It fails for SSL.

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot login via LDAP when configured using SSL
LDAP authentication works for non SSL
