SYMPTOMS

When an expired certificate is renewed on a Windows Server 2003-based domain controller, you may be unable to connect to the domain controller by using the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) over a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection.

When this problem occurs, the following event may be logged in the System log:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Schannel
Event Category: None
Event ID: 36876
Description:
The certificate received from the remote server has not validated correctly. The error code is 0x80090328. The SSL connection request has failed. The attached data contains the server certificate.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the domain controller continues to use the expired certificate until the domain controller restarts.
