"Ldap error occurred" error message when you try to run ADAMSync by specifying the SSL port of an ADAM instance

Symptoms

When you try to run ADAMSync by specifying the SSL port of an ADAM instance, you receive the following error message:

Establishing connection to target server exadam01:636
Ldap error occurred. Ldap_bidn_s:Server Down.

Cause

This issue occurs because ADAMSync doesn't support SSL. This behavior is by design.

ADAMSync doesn't use the function ldap_sslinit. This function is required when ADAMSync tries to bind to a server over SSL. Instead, ADAMSync uses only the ldap_init function and doesn’t set the necessary options within the function to try to bind to a server over SSL.

Resolution

This behavior doesn't pose a security problem, because ADAMSync encrypts the payload within the LDAP traffic by using the LDAP_OPT_ENCRYPT session option. 

For more information about the LDAP_OPT_ENCRYPT session option and the ldap_init function, go to the following Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) websites:
