It is necessity to add LDAP authenticator thru WLS console for Redhat Directory Server as LDAP server in the backend.

There is no provider type name in the WLS for Redhat Directory server, so one must add the provider with type 'LDAPAuthenticator' which is like generic LDAP server.

There is a need to setup additional authenticators thru WLS, but setting 'virtualize' parameter to true in jps-config.xml generates following error and WLS cannot start:

Caused By: JPS-02597: You configured a custom Authentication Provider or WLS generic LDAPAuthenticator, which the libOvd can not recognize. Supply the idstore.type property in jps-config.xml file, or use a specific WLS LDAP Authentication provider that matches your LDAP server instead of a generic one.

  Truncated. see log file for complete stacktrace

To eliminate error, would need to set virtualize option to false; but, that is not option as need more LDAP authenticators defined at WLS level.
