OID DIP 11g Configuration With MS-ADAM / AD LDS Reports "orclodipcondirurl" Has Invalid Value, or Profile Can Not be Created, or Stops Working with Log Error: ODIException: Profile Initialization Failure (Doc ID 1279748.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 08, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 11.1.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 11g version, Directory Integration Platform (DIP).

When attempting to create a DIP synchronization between Microsoft ADAM* and OID.
Once the profile is created it can be tested okay in Enterprise Manager but when testing a bootstrap or validating the profile, the following error occurs.

Profile MS_ADAM_Imp has following Error(s) and/or Warning(s):

Attribute "orclodipcondirurl" has invalid value "<AD HOSTNAME:<AD PORT#>"


For version or the profile fails to be created. In the wls_ods1-diagnostic.log the following error occurs.

Due to this issue, DIP configuration for synchronization with ADAM can not be completed.

Another potential DIP log error that can occur for profiles that were working before but suddenly stopped:
