Search To OVD Succeeds While It (Correctly) Fails To Backend OID Due to OID User Having a Password Policy [e.g., "Must Change Password At Next Login" (pwdreset=1) Expired / Violated] | OVD Not Returning OID Password Policies Full Messages

Applies to:Oracle Internet Directory - Version 10.1.4.3 to 22.214.171.124.0 [Release 10gR3 to 11g]
Oracle Virtual Directory - Version 10.1.4.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) 11g integrated with Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 11g versions lower than 126.96.36.199.3 Bundle Patch (BP).
OVD seems not to respect password policies violation / expiration such as the "Must Change Password at Next Login" password policy setting from OID.
A user with "password must be changed" flag set (pwdreset=1) can still login and search through OVD, but not through OID:
This also reproduces with OID 10g 10.1.4.3 as backend.
Note: The password policy attribute related is pwdmustchange, and the user entry attribute is pwdreset. Reference:
