That wasn't clear to me from the output you posted before. Since you
were posting a DN that uses '/' as its RDN separator, the software that
generated this log output should have escaped the '/' in the attribute
value if that was really the situation. E.g., it should have looked like
Using top-down-order and / as separator is the standard behaviour of OpenSSL.
:-/ One can also display subject and issuer names in certs with
openssl x509 -nameopt rfc2253

At this point I have no idea what you're really working with. The
comment I posted originally may not apply to this situation at all.
Since this is about GRID services I guess someone falsely put a Kerberos
service prinicipal name in the CN attribute of the server cert. The cert has
to be corrected to contain exactly the FQDN of the server used during LDAP
connect *without* the prefix "host/".
