(Doc ID 1530413.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Virtual Directory - Version 11.1.1.6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

While configuring an OVD eith EUS enabled,  Attempting an LDAP Compare operation for the value of a uniquemember for any groups adapter.

It returns FALSE, even if the group contains the correct value.

ldapsearch of group returns the proper value.

Reproduction Steps:

Create OVD instance
Configure LDAP instance.
Add group with a uniquemember
perform ldapcompare for uniquemember of the value of the uniquemember


./ldapcompare -h OVD_host -p 6501 -D cn=orcladmin -w password 
-b "cn=OCS_PORTAL_USERS,cn=groups,dc=apcfmw1oid"  -a uniquemember -v   
"cn=orcladmin" 

Output: 
The value cn=orcladmin is  contained in the attribute uniquemember in DN 
cn=OCS_PORTAL_USERS,cn=groups,dc=apcfmw1oid. 


Returns TRUE

----

Configure EUS on OVD

Perform SAME ldapcompare for uniquemember
Returns FALSE

 

./ldapcompare -h OVD_host -p 6501 -D cn=orcladmin -w Welcome1 
-b "cn=OCS_PORTAL_USERS,cn=groups,dc=apcfmw1oid"  -a uniquemember -v   
"cn=orcladmin" 

Output: 
The value cn=orcladmin is not contained in the attribute uniquemember in DN 
cn=OCS_PORTAL_USERS,cn=groups,dc=apcfmw1oid. 



This is due to the dgGroup plugin being configured globally by EUS configuration. Removing this plugin from the global list will allow the second compare to return the proper value.
