Last updated on JUNE 20, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 11.1.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 11g, i.e., with Directory Integration Platform (DIP).

Following <Note:1203927.1> and <Note:1207673.1> to set up DIP for SSL mode 2 / server authentication ssl mode.

Already verified the that connection to OID via mode 2 ssl works ok, e.g.:

ldapbind -h oidhost -p 3132 -D cn=orcladmin -w <password> -U 2 -W file:/<path to the wallet directory> -P <wallet pwd>
bind successful

However, on the DIP Configuration page in Enterprise Manager (EM) Fusion Middleware (FMW) control console, getting following error while changing DIP Server menu > Administration > Server Properties for the new ssl port and mode 2, and clicking the Test Connection button:

cannot connect directory server at  myoidhost : 3132

If ignoring the error and just clicking Save, it returns error:

Tried rebooting the server, but still at restart of the managed server, $FMW_HOME/user_projects/domains/<IDMDomain>/servers/wls_ods1/logs/wls_ods1-diagnostic.log shows error:
