Identity Manager MF LDAP SERVER FOR Z/OS Top Secret - LDAP

Issue/Introduction

When trying to connect Identity Manager on mainframe environment using LDAP the error "Invalid SSL Format" was received.

Cause

The ESM product (ACF2, Top Secret and others) uses StartTLS to convert an insecure connection to a secure one using SSL, so LDAP needs to have enabled both ldap and ldaps ports in order to make it happen.

Resolution

On slapd.conf file the parameter hosturls should have both ldap and ldaps ports coded. See the example bellow:

hosturls ldap://:389 ldaps://:390
