Unexpected LDAP search results with Red Hat Directory Server after StartTLS

Solution Verified - Updated -


LDAP search results for the same query differ between
1. Bind, StartTLS, Search
2. LDAPS, Bind, Search

for example, the first results in no entries being returned whereas the second provides the expected results.
When using Red Hat Directory Server 7.1 or earlier, both searches yield the same results.


  • Red Hat Directory Server (RHDS) 8.0 or later, configured for SSL use.
