RE: Directory unreachable after installing Domino Hotfix 457 Ben Williams 18.Dec.14 04:59 AM Lotus Notes Sametime Standard 8.5.2Windows
I assume that HF 457 includes patches for Poodle so there will be changes to SSL. I wonder if the certificate the Community server uses to connect to the LDAP server is the problem? Maybe after applying patches for Poodle the certificate has been invalidated? You have a work around which is good.
I must admit my domino knowledge is wearing thin so you may be better off posting this in the Domino forum unless someone else comes back to you.
If the Community server cannot bind to LDAP then your uses will not be able to log in. That is ultimately the reason for the errors in the client.
I'd expect to see failures on both servers. You can enable VP_TRACE_ALL=1 in the [DEBUG] section of the sametime.ini and you may find something in the Trace directory of the Community server that is of use. I suspect there is some trace you could add the notes.ini of both servers specific to LDAP and/or SSL.
