In the logs an error like the following may be logged:
javax.naming.CommunicationException: <ldap server> [Root exception is javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: Received fatal alert: handshake_failure]

With the introduction of CLM 6.0.1 some ciphers like RC4 have been disabled.  Some LDAP servers may still be using these older ciphers, which will cause the ssl handshake with the CLM server to fail.  Please work with the LDAP admin to update the LDAP ciphers.
