OID 11g: Replacing a CA-Related / Certificate Binary Attribute on One OID Replicates as an "Add" Operation on the Replica OID Instead of a "Modify", and an Additional Value is Added So the Entry Ends Up with Two Attributes (Doc ID 1607018.1)

Last updated on MARCH 24, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 11.1.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 11g with LDAP based replication configured.

OID replication is adding multiple Certificate Authority (CA) related / certificate binary attributes on the replica OID, such as certificaterevocationlist;binary and authorityrevocationlist;binary, instead of replacing the attribute value as it is being done on the originating OID.

The issue can be reproduced with the following steps (this is a simplified example using dummy values for demonstration only):

1.  Create a test CA entry in the master OID, for example:

dn: cn=ca,cn=users,dc=mycompany,dc=com
objectclass: cRLDistributionPoint
cn: ca
certificaterevocationlist;binary:: MIIB5TCBzgIBATANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQsFADBrMRMwEQ
