I tried to enable LDAP over SSL to Windows 2012R2 Active Directory via port 636, got the following error message.

01-11-2018 15:44:18.528 +0800 DEBUG ScopedLDAPConnection - strategy="LDAP Lab" Initializing with LDAPURL="ldaps://10.10.10.30:636"

Run the following command and confirmed that LDAP are able to connect using TLS1.1 and TLS1.2

splunk cmd openssl sclient -tls11 -connect 10.10.10.30:636
splunk cmd openssl sclient -tls12 -connect 10.10.10.30:636

Below is the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/openldap/ldap.conf

TLS_PROTOCOL_MIN 3.3
TLS_CIPHER_SUITE ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-ECDSA-

TLS_CACERT /opt/splunk/etc/openldap/certs/certnew.cer
TLS_CACERTDIR /opt/splunk/etc/openldap/certs

Any idea about this?

Can you try to concat the cert into a single pem file, and then add the following.

TLS_REQCERT never
TLS_CACERT /opt/splunk/etc/openldap/certs/Your_Concat_Cert.pem
#TLS_CACERTDIR /opt/splunk/etc/openldap/certs
