Active Directory Connector Creates a DN Value with Three Backslashes "\\\" (Doc ID 1622919.1)

Last updated on JUNE 02, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Waveset - Version 8.1.1.8 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Why does Active Directory Connector in version 8.1.1.8 or higher create an user's DN with 3 backslashes instead of just one backslash like earlier AD connector versions?

DN created by newer Active Directory connector version:  CN=Test\\\, User,OU=People,DC=test,DC=internal
DN created by older Active Directory connector version:   CN=Test\, User,OU=People,DC=test,DC=internal
