[Samba] SSL certificate in SAMBA4 LDAP?

Today I have looked again at the SSL certs from samba and I got them to
work with intermediate certificates. If you want to do this you need to
have to following:

and last your Global Root CA.pem (Mine intermediate CA is Alphassl so this
was GlobalSign_root_CA.pem)

Now copy your IntermediateCA.crt to /usr/local/samba/private/tls/ca.pem and
Yourdomain.key to /usr/local/samba/private/tls/key.pem

The part where it went wrong at first time was the cert.pem but to make it
work you have to do the following, create the file
/usr/local/samba/private/tls/cert.pem  and put at the beginning of the file
the certificate from Yourdomain.crt followed by the certificate in the file
IntermediateCA.crt and behind this you have to put your rootCA.pem and then
save the file.

Your cert.pem will look like the following:

Certificate of Yourdomain.crt
Certificate of IntermediateCA.crt
Certificate of RootCA.crt  in mine case this was GlobalSign_root_CA.pem

Restart samba and you now have your ldap running with a verified
intermediate certificate.
