OID11g SASL Digest-MD5 Authentication With Realms Fails With LDAP 49 Invalid Credentials (Doc ID 1528174.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 14, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 11.1.1.2.0 to 11.1.1.9.0 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

SASL authentication has been configured as mentioned in:
Oracle® Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Internet Directory 11g Release 1 (11.1.1)
32 Managing Authentication
32.1.4 Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL)

But now authentication is not happening. It always fails with an LDAP 49 Invalid Credentials error.

For example, testing with the SASL Bind Using OpenLDAP ldapsearch client, that initiates SASL authentication by default, with DIGEST-MD5;

/usr/bin/ldapsearch -h oid.au.oracle.com -p 3060 -Y DIGEST-MD5 -U dn:cn=orcladmin,cn=users,dc=au,dc=oracle,dc=com -b "" -s base objectclass=* supportedSASLMechanisms
SASL/DIGEST-MD5 authentication started
Please enter your password:
ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: Invalid credentials (49)
