OID 11g Server Not Functioning Properly After Bulkloading Data / Errors In Bulkload Log And Related Load Files (Doc ID 1291306.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

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

Used Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 11g bulkload command to load ldif file of data into OID.

Example bulkload commands:

./bulkload connect="oiddb" generate="TRUE" check="TRUE" file="/home/oracle/source.ldif"
./bulkload connect="oiddb" load="TRUE"

The bulkload commands may not return an error to the screen, however after loading the data and restarting OID server, OID seems to behave inconsistently and/or erratically.

For example, even though OID server is set to read/write mode correctly, modifying existing entries can fail with different errors, such as updating an operational attribute (i.e., createtimestamp is not modifable). Or modifying existing entries may work but adding new entries can fail with different errors (such as ldap error code 20 to the ldapadd screen, and/or error 68, 65 in OID server logs).

In re-examining bulkload logs/files more carefully, the following is found, for example:
