Running Policy Server, this one cannot connect to the Active Directory 

User Store using SSL when the 

connection is configured for LDAP NameSpace 


When I review the network traces, the Policy Server reports that it doesn't find the CA certificate in its cert8.db

Description: Unknown CA (48) 


How can I solve this ?


A Policy Server internal problem by initialization of the cert8.db causes this issue.


Policy Server 12.52SP1CR06 on Windows


The fix for this issue will be available in 12.52SP1CR09. When this version will be available, upgrade to that one.
