Symptoms

Ldapsearch on a Join Adapter does not return all isMemberOf attributes when using scope of base.

Example:

Configure 2 LDAP (ODSEE) adapters and one Join.

Output from ODSEE host1 adapter
--------------------------------------------------------
ldapsearch -h OVDhost -p 6502 -D cn=orcladmin -w welcome1 -b "cn=melissa,dc=host1odsee,dc=oracle,dc=com" -s sub "objectclass=*" ismemberof
cn=melissa,dc=host1ODSEE,dc=oracle,dc=com
ismemberof=cn=group1onhost1,dc=odsee,dc=com
ismemberof=cn=group2onhost1,dc=odsee,dc=com


Output from ODSEE host2 adapter
----------------------------------------------------------
 ldapsearch -h OVDhost -p 6502 -D cn=orcladmin -w welcome1 -b "cn=melissa,dc=host2odsee,dc=oracle,dc=com" -s sub "objectclass=*" ismemberof
cn=melissa,dc=host2ODSEE,dc=oracle,dc=com
ismemberof=cn=group1onhost2,dc=odsee,dc=com


Output from JOIN  (Same results with and without forkjoin plugin) -- ISSUE reproduced
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SCOPE of BASE: (only returns values from primary)

 ldapsearch -h OVDhost -p 6502 -D cn=orcladmin -w welcome1 -b "cn=melissa,dc=odseejoin,dc=oracle,dc=com" -s base "objectclass=*" ismemberof
cn=melissa,dc=odseejoin,dc=oracle,dc=com
ismemberof=cn=group1onhost1,dc=odsee,dc=com
ismemberof=group2onhost1,dc=odsee,dc=com


SCOPE OF SUB (returns expected values)

 ldapsearch -h OVDhost -p 6502 -D cn=orcladmin -w welcome1 -b "cn=melissa,dc=odseejoin,dc=oracle,dc=com" -s sub "objectclass=*" ismemberof
cn=melissa,dc=odseejoin,dc=oracle,dc=com
ismemberof=cn=group1onhost1,dc=odsee,dc=com
ismemberof=group2onhost1,dc=odsee,dc=com
ismemberof=cn=group1onhost2,dc=odsee,dc=com

 

TO configure OVD so that ismemberof is a viewable and searchable attribute
