Applies to:

Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition - Version: 6.3 SP1 and later   [Release: 6.0 and later ]

Symptoms

Directory Proxy Server version 6.3.1.1_CUMUL_2010_10_25 and later seems to reintroduce a known bug,  CR 6941610: "Silent BIND errors occur after DN mapping cache expires."
This bug was fixed in prior releases, but the errors may return in recent 6.3.1.1 hotfix bundles, as well as the current DPS version, 11.1.1.5.0 (7.1).

The major symptom is an error message in the Directory Proxy access log similar to this:

SEARCH RESPONSE err=32 msg="Unable to process the search request. Reason: Silent BIND failed :
err=32, error message "", matched DN "dc=test,dc=com"" nentries=0 etime=0

The issue only pertains to environments where DN mapping is configured.
