OrclGUID of OID Server Chaining entries not compatible with products like EBS (Doc ID 1502508.1)

Last updated on MAY 26, 2017

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

The orclGUID attribute is formatted differently for users that are defined in OID-proper and for those that are visible in the OID DIT through Server Chaining (in this case, from iPlanet):

ldapsearch -h oidhost -p port -D cn=orcladmin -w pwd -b "dc=oracle,dc=com" -s sub cn=orcladmin orclguid
dn: cn=orcladmin,cn=Users,dc=us,dc=oracle,dc=com
orclguid: A0D7490C0D4AA708E040A8C03D2E3FF6

ldapsearch -h oidhost -p port -D cn=orcladmin -w pwd -b "dc=oracle,dc=com" -s sub uid=mimarine orclguid
dn: uid=mimarine,cn=Users,cn=iplanet,dc=us,dc=oracle,dc=com
orclguid: af7707301dd111b280c182c3591826a3

Although technically the Hexadecimal numbers 0A-0F are equivalent to 0a-0f, the lack of consistency poses a problem for applications that are written to expect consistency, such as E-Business Suite.
