Pinned topic Using ClearQuest w/SSL certificate installutil validateldap command fails

‏2012-12-04T20:09:23Z |
"installutil validateldap CQ_QA admin admin99scm 999999 userpwd" fails with following:

Starting test validateldap
Invalid Credentials: Either the login name or the password is incorrect. The LDAP server returned this error: Failed to Bind ldap connection using the account specified by -D cn=ClearQuest,ou=robotics,o=swa-ldapdev -w ***. Please ensure that ClearQuest's LDAP server initialization parameters, including -D and -w, are set correctly.
Received the following LDAP error message: LDAP operation 'ratl_ldap_simple_bind_s' failed with error code 116. Description: Failed to connect to ssl server..

Validating LDAP failed.
The LDAP initialization parameters are:
-h "" -p 636 -D "cn=ClearQuest,ou=robotics,o=swa-ldapdev" -w *** -Z -K "win:\\msrtnlqa\rational\CQDevNewKey.kdb" admin99scm
The LDAP search parameters are:
-s sub -b o=swa-ldapdev (uid=%login%)
The ClearQuest <-> LDAP mapping is:
CQUser.CQ_LOGIN_NAME <----> uid

Exit code 1 for test validateldap

All other installutil commands complete successfully.

Any ideas on why this fails?

    There are several reasons for this, described in this Technote.
    If you cannot resolve the problem with the Technote, please open a PMR with IBM Rational Client Support and provide the key database and the password for it, along with the parameters you've set for LDAP.
