    Default external ldap authentication over SSL problem

    Hi, I am getting the following when I try to authenticate against an external ldap server:

    "SSL connect problem, most likely untrusted certificate"

    Authentication works fine without SSL. My LDAP server is using a certificate signed by our own Certificate Authority. How can I get Zimbra to trust this certificate?

    Thanks and Regards,

    Default Add it to cacerts

    You'll want to add your cert to the cacerts file, which java trusts.

    keytool -import -keystore /opt/zimbra/java/jre/lib/security/cacerts -storepass changeit -alias <alias> -file <certfile>

    where certfile is the file your cert is in, and alias is a descriptive name for the cert (eg, ldapauth)

    tomcat stop
    tomcat start
