Test case

Description of problem:

When setting TLSCACertificatePath to NSS DB, SSL/TLS does not work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

openldap-2.4.23-12.el6

How reproducible:

Always.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. install beakerlib
2. download attached test
2. bash runtest.sh
  
Actual results:

:: [   PASS   ] :: No SSL/TLS
:: [   FAIL   ] :: TLS (Expected 0, got 1)
:: [   FAIL   ] :: SSL (Expected 0, got 255)

Additional info:

As you can see from attached ldap.conf, TLS_CACERTDIR works fine with NSS DB, but TLSCACertificatePath does not (see slapd.conf). I am not sure that it is allowed to set this directive to NSS DB since slapd.conf(5) does not contain any details about using NSS DB. But according to the Admin Guide [1], it should work.

Attaching proposed patch. All changes are pulled from upstream.

The changes target only ldap.conf(5) and slapd-config(5), not obsoleted slapd.conf(5).
