OID LDAP Replication Fails. Replication Log Reports Many Conflict Resolution Messages and Invalid attrname format Errors (Doc ID 1373393.1)

Last updated on MAY 04, 2021

Applies to:

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


Oracle Internet Directory (OID).

May have followed the steps in the below document to configure OID LDAP Multimaster replication between two existing OID nodes, for example for 11g:

Oracle Fusion Middleware Tutorial for Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) Part Number E10276-01
    Chapter 3 Setting up Oracle Internet Directory Replication

However replication does not work.

Many different types of Confict Resolution Message are thrown in the consumer replication server logs, such as, for example:

[OID] [NOTIFICATION:16] [] [OIDLDAPD] [host: <HOSTNAME>] [pid: <PID>] [tid: <TID>] ServerDispatcher  : sgslufread: Hard error on read, OS error = 104
Worker(Transport):: Invalid attrname format
 Worker(Transport)::[[************ Conflict Resolution Message ************
Conflict reason: Parent entry does not exist.

(Note:  The OS error = 104 is not typically related to any specific problem, and can be normal and ignored in replication logs.)

And many of the following error for several different attributes are also reported, for example:

[2011-10-30T17:03:08-06:00] [OID] [TRACE:16] [] [OIDREPLD] [host: <HOSTNAME>] [pid: <PID>] [tid: <TID>] Worker(Transport):: Invalid attrname format createtimestamp.

[2011-10-30T17:03:08-06:00] [OID] [TRACE:16] [] [OIDREPLD] [host: <HOSTNAME>] [pid: <PID>] [tid: <TID>] Worker(Transport):: Invalid attrname format modifiersname.

[2011-10-30T17:03:08-06:00] [OID] [TRACE:16] [] [OIDREPLD] [host: <HOSTNAME> [pid: <PID>] [tid: <TID>] Worker(Transport):: Invalid attrname format modifytimestamp.

And replication server appears to be restarting often.
