Weblogic Server Not Closing LDAP (iPlanet) Connection (Doc ID 1308807.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Weblogic Server - Version: 8.1 to 9.0
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

An iPlanet LDAP Server for authentication is set up through WebLogic Server (WLS) administration console iPlanetAuthenticator.  This LDAP server is used for an application authentication which is hosted on WLS 8.1 SP3.

The authentication works alright, but the LDAP connections are not closed by WLS and because of many concurrent users you end up with over 2000 LDAP connections open after a couple of days.
