Group Members Distinguished Name (DN) Not Correctly Translated By OVD (Doc ID 1529362.1)

Last updated on MARCH 14, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Virtual Directory - Version 10.1.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) 10g or 11g.

OVD rewrite / translation of group members Distinguished Name (DN) not working as expected.

When doing a simple join of two groups, the membership shows the users with DNs in their true remote namespace location and not the relative root namespace location in OVD. So when the application is looking for the user, it will not find it, e.g.:

User true location = cn=userid, ou=users, ou=myou, dc=mydc, dc=mycompany, dc=com
User OVD location = cn=userid, ou=external,ou=users,dc=local

How to translate the member DNs in groups in OVD correctly?
