SYMPTOMS
On a client computer, you use the Ldapsearch.exe utility to try to connect to a Windows Server 2003-based domain controller. To do this, you use Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). However, you cannot connect to this domain controller. You experience this problem when the client certificate is larger than 1024 bytes.

When these same conditions are true, you do not encounter the problem if you connect to the domain controller by using the Ldp.exe utility.
