Oracle Access Manager (OAM) has been integrated with Oracle Identity Manager (OIM)

The integration was performed using Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) as Identity Store.

When testing integrated OAM-OIM password policy management with repeated login attempts using incorrect password, errors similar to the following are seen in the OAM Managed Server log:

<Oct 5, 2011 9:49:53 AM CEST> <Error> <oracle.oam.user.identity.provider> <OAMSSA-20023> <Authentication Failure for user : TESTINTEGRATION1.>
<Oct 5, 2011 9:49:53 AM CEST> <Error> <oracle.oam.user.identity.provider> <OAMSSA-20040> <Could not modify user attribute for user : TESTINTEGRATION1, attribute : obLoginTryCount, value : 1 .>
<Oct 5, 2011 9:49:53 AM CEST> <Warning> <oracle.oam.controller> <OAM-02072> <Ignoring failure during Identity Store operation.>

Steps to reproduce

1. Access resource protected by OAM 11g.
2. OAM 11g login page is displayed.
3. Submit correct username with incorrect password.
4. OAM 11g login page is redisplayed. OAM Managed Server log shows error '<OAMSSA-20040> <Could not modify user attribute for user : USERID, attribute : obLoginTryCount, value : 1 .>'
