Ldapbind to OVD 11g is shown as a search in the backend directory (Doc ID 1535041.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

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


Set up an OVD Adapter against a backend directory, such as OUD. The passCredentials is set to Always

However, an ldapbind operation against OVD can be seen in the OUD logs as having been converted a search operation by OVD.
This causes a problem with OUD because it does not subsequently trigger the user's last login time to be updated


Example of Bind against OVD :

$ORACLE_HOME/bin/ldapbind -h -p 6501 -D 'uid=John Garza,ou=People' -w mypasswd
bind successful
- Gets the following in OUD access log:
25/Feb/2013:06:02:23 +0000 SEARCH REQ conn=54 op=8 msgID=9 base="uid=John Garza,ou=People,dc=au,dc=oracle,dc=com" scope=baseObject filter="(objectClass=*)" attrs="userpassword"
25/Feb/2013:06:02:23 +0000 SEARCH RES conn=54 op=8 msgID=9 result=0 nentries=1 etime=2

- Gets the following in the wls_ods1-diagnostic.log after setting the  OVD debug to TRACE:32
 Search using:[[
    BindDN: cn=John Garza,ou=People
    Base: cn=John Garza,ou=People,dc=au,dc=oracle,dc=com
    Scope: 0
       Attributes: [userpassword]
   Filter: objectClass=*
