It should not be possible to have different views in the UI and the CLI
since they make the same backend calls. What you'd want to do, hopefully
on a semi-quiet system, is to do a host-find on the CLI and then list
all hosts in the UI and compare the logs in /var/log/httpd/error_log and
look at the LDAP queries in /var/log/dirsrv/slapd-REALM/access (this is
a buffered log so be patient).

They should be doing more or less the exact same set of queries.

Very doubtful that this has anything to do with certs. Anything on the
client would be completely separate from what is on the server.

One thing you may be seeing though is that in 3.0 clients a host
certificate was obtained for it. This was dropped with 4.0, but it
wouldn't affect any visibility on the server.
