OVD 11g: How To Build Multiple Adapters With The Same Root Namespace, So As To Unify / Consolidate Into A Single Domain Or Single Searchbase? (Doc ID 1483806.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 06, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Virtual Directory - Version 11.1.1.5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) 11g.

Scenario 1:
Deploying two adapters, an LDAP and a Database (DB) adapter.  Both adapters share the same root (e.g., ou=People, dc=global) and need Oracle Access Manager (OAM) to be able to authenticate users in the two adapters (the LDAP has higher priority than the database) and there is no pattern that can be used to establish routes between them.  (The reason for having the same namespace for both adapters is to have an unified vision / look of the users backends and data for the applications, and OAM is not the only application that is going to use OVD.)

Scenario 2:
Three ADs for HQ and subsidiary company.  And some employees in each company have user identity in each AD domain as below, for example:
- ADDomain1
- ADDomain2
- ADDomain3
The rest are each a unique user identity.  So, need to consolidate the user identity in each domain to a new single one, i.e., to have a single user search base of "dc=mycompany,dc=com."

How to achive these requirements?
