The LdapClientTlsCACert property specifies the name of the file that contains all the Certificate Authorities (CAs), including the certificate for the CA that signed the directory server certificate that TDGSS and OpenLdap tools trust. If the signing CA is not a top-level (root) CA, certificates for the entire sequence of CAs from the signing CA to the top-level CA must be present. The certificate order is not significant.

You can use this property for certificate chain verification when all CAs are in one file, but LdapClientTlsCACertDir is preferred. See LdapClientTlsCACertDir.

  • Configure this property or LdapClientTlsCACertDir (preferred) when using TLS. See Verifying the Directory Server Certificate Chain.

  • If you decide to use TLS protection, edit this property for all mechanisms that have the AuthorizationSupported property set to yes.

  • Set the value on each node and the Unity server, if used. Also see Coordinating Mechanism Property Values for Unity.
