It seems there was a lot more wrong/missing in this procedure than realized. I'm
working with Rob to fix it.
Comment 2 David O'Brien 2008-07-27 22:16:09 EDT
I think this makes more sense now. If my test machine stops breaking I'll have a
go at testing it.

Fix Verified:

Following exists in Section 2.4 of Client config Guide:

1. Modify the following in the /etc/ldap.conf file:

URI     ldap://ipaserver.example.com
BASE dc=example,dc=com
HOST ipaserver.example.com
TLS_CACERTDIR /etc/cacerts/

2. Log in to the client machine, and become the root user.

3. Change to the directory where you need to install the CA certificate.

# cd /etc/cacerts 

4 Run the following command to copy the CA certificate from the server to the client:

# wget http://ipaserver.example.com/ipa/config/ca.crt

If you installed IPA using your own PKCS#12 files then this self-signed CA will not exist.

5. Install the CA certificate as follows:

# cp cacert.crt /etc/cacerts/`openssl x509 -noout -hash -in cacert.crt`.0 

6. If more than one CA certificate is required, concatenate these certificates into a single file.
