OID 10g DIP Sync Fails With Trace File Error: ODIException: Incorrect Format: First Line after TAG should be an attr:Val Pair (Doc ID 1266705.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version: 9.0.4 to 10.1.4.3 - Release: 10gR1 to 10gR3
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Directory Integration Platform (DIP) synchronization updates from Active Directory (AD) to Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 10g stopped working.

The sync profile with debug level 63 shows the following error on the trace file:

Incorrect Format: First Line after TAG should be an attr:Val Pair
ODIException: Incorrect Format: First Line after TAG should be an attr:Val Pair

Changes

After upgrading / applying patchset to OID, noticed that a lot of DIP sync updates were missed.  Tried to up the profile configuration delta time to 1000 from default 500 to catch up with the AD updates, but since then DIP sync stopped working.
