After Adding New Custom Schema Objects To Replicated OID Nodes, One Custom Attribute Fails To Replicate / Replicates Only The First Couple Changes

(Doc ID 1534165.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version to 11.1.1 [Release 10gR3 to 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 10g, e.g. or 11g.

OID nodes previously configured for replication were working fine.

Added custom attributes and objectclasses in both directories' schemas.

Replication works for all of other attributes, but not for one of the new custom attributes.

It works with no problems for the first two (2) changes only, but at the third change it does not replicate and it becomes out of sync with the other node.

Steps To Reproduce The Case Scenario:
1. Start with an already existing user entry with a sequential ID as the CN attribute value.
2. Change the user ID (CN) to the email address of the user, and the custom attribute (called status) is changed to, e.g., "ID changed."
3. The user changes his/her password and the custom status attribute is set to "Password changed."
4. If the user forgets his/her password, an admin sets a new password and changes the custom status attribute to "Password forgotten."
5. After this change, the entry is no longer replicated to the corresponding entry in the slave/replica node.
6. Further changes to the custom attribute no longer replicate either.


 Added custom objects to the OID's schemas.
