    I have opendj installed in my local windows machine. i am trying to connect to remote opendj server which is running in AWS Linux machine. but i get error

    “Could not connect to Check that the server is running and that it is accessible from the local machine.”

    Any help would be much appreciated.


    Can you connect to the remote OpenDJ server with another tool, such as ldapsearch, dsconfig or telnet?
    If so, you might want to check if you have a certificate or SSL issue by enabling SSL debugging:


    Tried connecting with Jxplorer tool. it connects fine. One more issue i am facing is whenever i try to check running status of oepndj by entering password for “cn=Directory Manager”, I get below error.

    Error reading configuration. Details:
    javax.naming.CommunicationException: simple bind failed: [Root
    exception is No subject alternative names present]

    This is my java version

    openjdk version “1.8.0_191”
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_191-b12)
    OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.191-b12, mixed mode)


    The OpenDJ Control Panel uses JNDI to connect to the server, and has such, with newest version of Java 8, verifies that the server certificates matches the hostname that the client tries to connect to.
    This is documented in the JDK’s release notes.
    ForgeRock has a knowledge base article that describes the issue and explains solutions.
