I've added the new DoD Root CA3, but still can't accept certificates from this CA. I'm running Apache on Solaris 10 x64.

What do you mean by accepting certificates? Apache is a web server, so unless you're trying to set up a DoD site that is secured using a DoD-issued certificate (in which case, I would hope you wouldn't be asking that question on a public-facing resource like this), then Apache doesn't really factor into acceptance of certificates.

If you can provide the steps to the scenario where you're seeing an issue with acceptance of a certificate, that would narrow down what the problem is.

Could you expand on "I was confusing  SSL configuration with certificates."  This does not make sense.

In order to do SSL at a minimum the server must have a certificate.

SSL is the encryption of traffic on a connection. Certificates are use to verify who is who prior to allowing the connection to continue.

SSL was misconfigured on server, but I initially thought it was a cert issue.

It was a server config issue.
