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.

I found the solution.  I was confusing  SSL configuration with certificates.  
Thanks for taking the time to responded.

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.
