Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) has been configured with a database (db) adapter. Attributes userid and userpassword have been mapped to columns in the database object configured for the adapter.

Bind as any database user fails with invalid credentials. Example:

ldapbind -h ovd.oracle.com -p 6501 -D "cn=testuser,ou=db,dc=ovd,dc=oracle,dc=com" -w welcome1
ldap_bind: Invalid credentials

Additional symptoms

Bind fails even when the password value is stored in clear text in the database object.

ldapsearch for the same database user is successful, but the userpassword attribute is not included in the LDAP attributes returned for the user entry.
