I understand. Where is the cert db?
Is that controled by /etc/openldap/ldap.conf?
No. It is completely different. The operating system ldap client code
is OpenLDAP which uses OpenSSL for crypto. Fedora DS uses Mozilla NSS
took *.db from the consumser's /opt/fedora-ds/alias, copied them over to the location
TLS_CACERTDIR (/etc/openldap/cacerts) and still got the same error.
Right. OpenSSL doesn't use our NSS .db format. Fedora DS doesn't use
/etc/ldap* or /etc/openldap* at all. However, OS clients, such as
/usr/bin/ldapsearch, PAM, NSS, etc. use /etc/ldap* and /etc/openldap*
On the supplier:
[root@cnyldap01 cacerts]# ll

-rw------- 1 root root 16384 Jan 18 13:48 slapd-cnjldap01-key3.db
On the consumer (cnjldap01) still:

What am I doing wrong?
You need to use certutil -L to export the CA certificate and certutil -A
to import it where needed e.g.
# cd /opt/fedora-ds/alias
# ../shared/bin/certutil -L -d . -P slapd-supplier-
you should see something like
CA certificate CT,,
then you can do
# ../shared/bin/certutil -L -d . -P slapd-supplier- -n "CA certificate"
-a > cacert.asc
to export the CA certificate in ASCII (RFC 1113) encoding.
Next, import the CA cert into your consumer cert db:
# ../shared/bin/certutil -A -d . -P slapd-consumer- -n "CA certificate"
-t "CT,," -a -i cacert.asc
Note that it may prompt you for the password you used to protect the
You will need to restart your consumer.
You can also take this cacert.asc and use the openssl tool to convert
this into a .pem file for use with those clients (or is .asc the same as
