Symptoms

Spaces gives "internal error" when a user is trying to sign in after Open LDAP integration.

The Spaces diagnostic log shows:

[2010-04-27T12:12:29.870+03:00] [WLS_Spaces1] [ERROR] [] [oracle.jps.idmgmt] [tid: [ACTIVE].ExecuteThread: '1' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'] [ecid: 0000IWyYViM81zUVQ6q2S91BpdKZ00001Z,0] [APP: webcenter] java.lang.NullPointerException[[

Signing into discussion forum or wiki with the same user declared in OpenLdap works fine.

Changes

The WebCenter instance has been configured to use an external LDAP server following the documentation below:

Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter 11g Release 1 (11.1.1)
