You configure IRM Server to use an external LDAP server, using a Distinguished Name like this one:


When this is configured, you cannot restart WebLogic Admin server. You see an error like the following:

<Notice> <Security> <BEA-090082> <Security initializing using security realm myrealm.> <Jun 9, 2010 1:20:20 AM EDT> <Critical> <Security> <BEA-090404> <User sysadmin is not permitted to boot the server; The server policy may have changed in such a way that the user is no longer able to boot the server. Reboot the server with the administrative user account or contact the system administrator to update the server policy definitions.>

If instead you use the Principal cn=sysadmin, WebLogic server boots, but you cannot see users and groups in myrealm.
