ODSEE - Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition Replication Primary Server Stuck in Referral Mode (Doc ID 1326122.1)

Last updated on MAY 03, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition - Version 5.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When using ldapmodify to write to server1, it returns an ldap referral message.

For example:

# ./ldapmodify -R -p PORT -D "cn=DS_ADMIN" -w <dPASSWORD>
dn: uid=USER_ONE,ou=people,dc=SUFFIX_DN
changetype: modify
replace: description
description: 123

modifying entry uid=USER_ONE,ou=people,dc=SUFFIX_DN
ldap_modify: Referral received
ldap_modify: matched: dc=SUFFIX_DN
Referral: ldap://<host>:<port>/uid=USER_ONE,ou=people,dc=SUFFIX_DN

Server1 is a master and should not be referring updates.
