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


Problem Description
Customer has Directory Server version, customer currently using "cn=Directory Manager" to create/delete/edit accounts in to the LDAP instance.

However, customer wanted to avoid using "cn=Directory Manager" account to manage their users accounts.

So customer created an ACL to allow a user to create/delete/edit accounts in to the LDAP instance.

Customer wanted to restrict this user to only be able to manage within this suffix "ou=student,ou=people,dc=ite,dc=edu,dc=sg"

Customer created following ACI and no syntax error:
(targetattr="*") (version 3.0; acl "studentadmin"; allow (all) (userdn = "ldap:///self" or userdn = "ldap:///uid=studentadmin,dc=xx,dc=xx,dc=xx") ;)

When attempting to modify password of an user, such as 'userPassword' attribute of an entry 'uid=txxk,ou=student,ou=people,dc=xx,dc=xx,dc=xx'
the following error occurs.

[10/Jan/2014:20:23:44 +0800] conn=4804 op=13 msgId=14 - RESULT err=50 tag=103 nentries=0 etime=0, Insufficient 'write' privilege to the 'userPassword' attribute of entry 'uid=txxk,ou=student,ou=people,dc=xx,dc=xx,dc=xx'.
