Connectivity Issues Reported on Applications Authenticating thru OID - ORA-02396 (Doc ID 1559265.1)

Last updated on JUNE 30, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 11.2.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Periodically the OID system will report invalid credentials or incorrect username or password for all accounts contained in the directory. During this time, attempts to log into the odsm portal return a rotating set of errors. This eventually resolves itself for a period of time and then later this behavior will repeat itself. All applications relying on LDAP authentication fail to allow user logins due to this issue.
