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





Use joined adapters in OVD.
