Applies to:

Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition - Version 5.2 SP1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Operations error when running ldapsearch and ldapmodify against the server. Now all apps that require Directory server authentication are failing in the environment.

# ./ldapsearch -b o=REALM -D "cn=DS_ADMIN" -j ******* uid=userOne-j

ldap_search: Operations error

Also: ldapmodify command, the answer is the following:

ldap_modify: Operations error

Because of this behavior, all applications experience failures in authentication against directory services in the environment.

Using ldapsearch or ldapmodify to bind as DS_ADMIN  does not work either.
