Created a new user in Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) and performed Recon / Ldap Sync to one of two Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 11g nodes, i.e., node1 part of a two-node replication group.

Later realized that the wrong username was used, so went back and renamed the user.

OID node1 then ended up with two users, one with the old name and one with the new username.

In OID node2 however, only the latter (the corrected/renamed username) was replicated.

This can be seen with ldapsearch command line and in Oracle Directory Sevices Manager (ODSM).
