Configuring Identity Store in OID 11g With Command "idmConfigTool.sh -preConfigIDStore" Fails With Error: "User Search Base does not exist" (Doc ID 1515035.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

 The idmConfigTool fails to create user store using -preConfigIDStore parameter.

Using two different documents:

Oracle Maximum Available Architecture
 An Oracle White Paper Version 1.4 - December 2012
    Identity Management 11.1.2 Enterprise Deployment Blueprint

And:

Oracle® Fusion Middleware Integration Guide for Oracle Identity Management Suite 11g Release 2 (11.1.2) Part Number E27123-03
 Chapter 7 Integrating Access Manager and Oracle Identity Manager
    Section 7.4 Configuring the Identity Store
       Topic 7.4.1 Extending Directory Schema for Access Manager

Trying to populate a second Oracle Internet Directory (OID) ldap directory with the user and group directories with command:

 

The error seems redundant because, of course, those containers do not yet exist.  The command is suppose to be creating them to begin with.


The actual doc section that indicates the command will create the stores is Section 2.3.1 on page 2-3 in the table for "preConfigIDStore":

 Chapter 2 Using the idmConfigTool Command
    Section 2.3.1 Command Syntax

Which contains a table with the following:

Command               Component name       Description
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
preConfigIDStore      Identity Store       Configures the identity store and policy store by creating the groups and setting ACIs to the various containers.



As noted, this states "Configures the identity store and policy store by creating the groups and setting ACI's to various containers."
