How to find if a bind is direct or using pass-through authentication (PTA), from the Delegate server's access logs? (Doc ID 1359819.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 27, 2011

Applies to:

Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition - Version: 6.0 to 6.3.1 SP1 DPS6.3.1.1 - Release: 6.0 to 6.0
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Lets assume the environment has two set of servers, lets call it A and B.
Lets assume the BindID format for A is A-Bind-format (eg. uid=scarter,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com) and BindID format for B is B-Bind-format (eg. uid=scarter,ou=people,o=test.org).

The customer likes to have the applications connecting to A with B-Bind-format also to be able to authenticate, in addition to A-Bind-format.

So PTA plugin is enabled in A with the PTA host set to B.

The goal is to know from the access logs of B servers what Binds are direct from the applications and what Binds are through PTA from A.
