Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Using "cn=<DS_ADMIN>" to create/delete/edit accounts in to the LDAP instance.

However, since  it is preferred to avoid using "cn=<DS_ADMIN>" account to manage users accounts, an ACL was created to allow a user to create/delete/edit accounts in the LDAP instance.

Restrictions for this user are within the suffix "ou=<OU>,ou=people,dc=<SUFFIX_DN>"

The following ACI was created on the dc=<SUFFIX_DN> entry which resulted in no syntax error:
(targetattr="*") (version 3.0; acl "<NEW_ADMIN>"; allow (all) (userdn = "ldap:///self" or userdn = "ldap:///uid=<NEW_ADMIN>,dc=<SUFFIX_DN>") ;)

When attempting to modify the password of a user, such as the 'userPassword' attribute of an entry 'uid=txxk,ou=<OU>,ou=people,dc=<SUFFIX_DN>'
the following error occurs.

RESULT err=50 tag=103 nentries=0 etime=0, Insufficient 'write' privilege to the 'userPassword' attribute of entry 'uid=<USER.1>,ou=<OU>,ou=people,dc=<SUFFIX_DN>'.
