Expired certificates for SSL/TLS cause secd.ldap.noServers

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • Third party LDAP servers


  • After enabling SSL/TLS on the already existing LDAP configuration storage access may be impacted as connection to the LDAP server fails
  • EMS logs:

secd.ldap.noServers: None of the LDAP servers configured for Vserver (VS1) are currently accessible via the network for LDAP service type (Service: LDAP (Active Directory), Operation: SiteDiscovery).

secd.ldap.noServers: None of the LDAP servers configured for Vserver (VS1) are currently accessible via the network for LDAP service type (Service: LDAP (Active Directory), Operation: MapNetbiosDomainToADDomain).

  • Secd logs:
error:14090086:SSL routines:ssl3_get_server_certificate:certificate verify failed 
LDAP TLS Alert generated is 'fatal:decrypt error'
error:0407006A:rsa routines:RSA_padding_check_PKCS1_type_1:block type is not 01

secd: secd.unexpectedFailure:debug]: vserver (VSERVER) Unexpected failure.
Error: Get DC Info procedure failed CIFS Domain Query via LSAR_DS_ROLE_GET_DOMAIN_INFO - Client Ip = X.X.X.X
User = DOMAIN\USER   ...    
[   236] Successfully connected to ip X.X.X.X, port 389 using TCP  
[   377] Unable to start TLS: Connect error  
[   377]   Additional info: error:14090086:SSL routines:ssl3_get_server_certificate:certificate verify failed (certificate has expired)  

  • Secd log entry will contain the subject of the expected certificate

00000013.0022c89e 01eab99b Mon Apr 06 2020 14:31:44 +01:00 [kern_secd:info:14641] | [000.499.972]  info :  Required certificate with <CANAME> is not installed { in VerifyCertificateRevocationViaOSCP() at src/connection_manager/secd_connection.cpp:1667 }

  • Expiration date indicate expiry in CLI command:  ::> security certificate show
  • Packet trace can show the full certificate chain is provided by the client

Example of LDAP server provides a certificate chain composed of two certificates

  • One is the certificate of the of the host itself (LDAPserverhostname, issued by issuer CA),
  • Other, an intermediate certificate (Issuer CA issued by Root CA)
