How to Rename or Change A Misconfigured Installed OID Default Realm Root DN Tree / OID Base DN Default Container? (Doc ID 1602709.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 11, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 9.0.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


During a new Oracle Internet Directory (OID) installation, the default Identity-Realm was configured as, for example, dc=<DC1>,dc=<COMPANY1>,dc=com.

After entries from a previous OID were migrated to the new OID, they ended up were under a different tree / realm altogether, for example, dc=<DC2>,dc=<COMPANY2>,dc=<COUNTRY>.

How to change this default realm to the other desired container? What are the implications of this misconfiguration? Would an uninstall/reinstall be best?

Concerns includes:

- Access controls from the OID root node that may not be inherited into the dc=<DC2>,dc=<COMPANY2>,dc=<COUNTRY> root and subtrees
- Password policies might not be inherited into the dc=<DC2>,dc=<COMPANY2>,dc=<COUNTRY> sub-tree
- Internal OID-processes might ignore this branch
- Impact on future use of additional OID-functionality, like DIP or Replication, and also other Oracle products that may be integrated
