NetWare 6.5 server MUSTANG is one of four NetWare servers on this LAN, one of the four is running NW 5.1 but is only used for images (no client access)

Problems with setup and configuration of iPrint and iManager lead us to find a repeating series of LDAP error messages:

LDAP initialization failed.
Configured LDAP was found ready to use.
NIF CertHandler: Root certificate file for master ldap not found, requesting a new one from server.
NIF CertHandler: # Root certs=1
NIF CertHandler: Retrieved certificate of size=1337
*MASTER(mustang.mustang.org) (-1) ldap_simple_bind : Can't contact LDAP server(81)
ldap *MASTER(mustang.mustang.org) down
LDAP initialization failed. Check LDAP and restart apache.

Running PKIdiag showed 0 fixable problems.
