DIP Import Sync From Novell eDirectory To OID Intermittently Fails / Initially With Debugged Trace File Error LDAP: error code 16 / Later With LDAP: error code 53 Followed By LDAP: error code 65 (Doc ID 1299290.1)

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version: 9.0.4 and later   [Release: 10gR1 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 10g with Directory Integration Platform (DIP) import synchronization from Novell eDirectory to OID.

Sequence of events for provisioning and syncs:
1. EBS creates a user and properly provisions it to OID; this works fine.
2. HR Database (DB) synch then populates employeenumber into OID; this works fine.
3. Novell DIP import synch populates the Novell Mapped attributes into OID; this works fine.
4. A second round of Novell import sync updates occur, when Novell modifytimestamp is updated and the CN case is changed to lowercase.  At this stage is when sync sometimes fails.

The problem occurs randomly / intermittently and is reproducible at will.

Initially the sync profile debugged trace file showed error:

Exception Modifying Entry : javax.naming.directory.NoSuchAttributeException: [LDAP: error code 16 - 20100510204033Z not found
for attribute orclsourcemodifytimestamp.]; remaining name 'cn=user111,cn=users,dc=mycompany,dc=us'
javax.naming.directory.NoSuchAttributeException: [LDAP: error code 16 - 20100510204033Z not found for attribute orclsourcemodifytimestamp.]; remaining name 'cn=user111,cn=users,dc=mycompany,dc=us'

Later the traces showed the following two errors more consistently:

Exception Modifying Entry : javax.naming.OperationNotSupportedException: [LDAP: error code 53 - Function Not Implemented]; remaining name 'cn=user222,cn=users,dc=mycompany,dc=us'
javax.naming.OperationNotSupportedException: [LDAP: error code 53 - Function Not Implemented]; remaining name 'cn=user222,cn=users,dc=mycompany,dc=us'
