Schannel Event ID 36869 ".... does not have private key information ..."

What a fun one this was to troubleshoot, thanks one again M$!

The error for me was being triggered when people tried to connect via LDAPS (not the commonly found results for HTTPS although much of the information here likely overlaps).

Here are all the articles I used for reference to solve this, I had to piece some things together and use the diagnostic info on some of them to get the full picture:

Pre-configuring CPAN for non-interactive installation

Tags: 

I do a lot of linux and windows automated system building. Automated system building requires many commands along the way to be 'silenced' and 'assume default' answers for questions that during a normal, single system build you can answer easily along the way. One that has gotten me over the years is the need for you to initialize CPAN before you can use 'cpan -i' to install packages relatively silently in most cases. Once, you configure this one time (each login user must configure) you never have to answer the default set of questions again.

How To Disable IPV6 in Windows 7

* This should also apply to Windows Vista
* This will basically disable ipv6 to the point where it won't create any of the garbage IP6 tunnels, etc in ipconfig /all
* It was necessary in my case where even with IPV6 protocol unchecked as an item in the adapter interface it would still create DNS entries for the IPV6 address when registering itself then those IPV6 addresses would be returned for DNS queries for my servers and the traffic would go nowhere!!!
