Multiple Users Returned From OVD Preventing Authentication of the Single-Sign-On Server ( OAM )

(Doc ID 1519258.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Virtual Directory - Version 10.1.4.3 to 11.1.1.6.0 [Release 10gR3 to 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Oracle Virtual Directory ( OVD ) is configured as the LDAP User repository for Oracle Access Manager ( OAM ) .

OAM executes a ldapsearch to verify the user exists in the user repository and to obtain the Distinguished Name (DN) of the LDAP user entry for authentication.

OVD returns more than one user entry and therefore the user could not be uniquely identified and the OAM authentication fails.
