Subject RE: Using Ldaps With Apacheds 1.5.5
Date Thu, 18 Dec 2008 13:13:01 GMT
We had the same problem and worked around it by
using our own ldapserver class to set up the certificates
the way we need them and use them for ssl configuration.

Overwriting the keys for uid=admin,ou=system did not work out
as expected so that we had to use our own ldapserver class.

You can use Studio to do that, as it's a standard attribute. But I think 
we need a specific tool for certificates.

I have to check internally.
