According to the documentation for GW8, if you are using SSL for ldap you should put the rootcert.der file in /opt/novell/groupwise/agents/lib/nldap then just specify rootcert.der when setting up the ldap server in ConsoleOne.

Novell Documentation on this.

I did this, but the POA can't find the file. If I specify the full path (/opt/novell/groupwise/agents/lib/nldap/rootcert.der) the POA is able to find the file.

Has the default path changed for Linux POAs?
