Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) 11g, i.e., version.


AD DIT tree configured as follows:

+ dc=org
    + dc=mycompany1
    + ou=user accounts             (users are at this level)
    + ou=groups                      (groups are at this level)

OVD configured with two adapters as follows:

"MY_AD_Users" adapter for users:

+ dc=dev
    + dc=mycompany2
    + ou=Users
    + ou=MYOU                       (representing users in AD that are in "ou=user accounts,dc=mycompany1,dc=org")

"MY_AD_Groups" adapter for groups:

+ dc=dev
    + dc=mycompany2
    + ou=Groups
    + ou=MYOU                       (representing groups in AD that are in "ou=groups,ou=user accounts,dc=mycompany1,dc=org")



Searches against OVD requesting memberof attribute return the wrong DN for the user member.  For example:

The same wrong DN results continue after applying the DNTranslator plugin, either with no parameters, or with IncludedAdapter parameter value of mycompany2_AD_Groups.
