EVENT ID 36881 Schannel Error

I received this error on a box that holds a database that polls LDAP once a day on LDAPS to get our user directory for its contact info etc.
This error started after certificates rotated on some of the boxes and it must have rotated on the box this server polls to get the AD info from.

Thanks to Microsoft the solution was simple but annoying, a scheduled reboot of the machine.
