Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

For an Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) joined adapter, the errors are returned only as XML.

The ldif file will force an error on an entry coming from a joined OVD adapter.  The error is initially reported as "ldap_modify: Unknown error" and the additional info is reported with XML tags, for example:

ldapmodify -h <hostname> -p <port> -D cn=orcladmin -w password -f mod.ldif

modifying entry cn=test...
ldap_modify: Unknown error
ldap_modify: additional info: <?xml version = '1.0' encoding = 'UTF-8'?><errors><operation>modify</operation><virtualDN>cn=test...</virtualDN><error>
<adapter>test_zuzu</adapter><msg>LDAP Error 17 : LDAP Error 17 : [LDAP: errorcode 17 - Attribute modify is not supported in schema.]</msg><dn>cn=test...</dn><attributes>[modify, objectclass]
</attributes></error><error><adapter>test_adapter</adapter><msg>LDAP Error 17 :LDAP Error 17 : [LDAP: error code 17- Attribute modify is not supported in schema.]</msg><dn>cn=test...</dn><attributes>[modify, objectclass]</attributes></error></errors>


Without a joined adapter the error is reported as, for example:

modifying entry cn=test...
ldap_modify: Type or value exists

 

 

 

Changes

Use joined adapters in OVD.
