OAM/EBS Logins Fail the First Time for OID Users Sync'd from AD | OAM log error: OAMSSA-20023: Authentication Failure for user : user01, for idstore EBSIdStore with exception invalid username/password with primary error message null (Doc ID 1903188.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 25, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version and later
Oracle Access Manager - Version to [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 11g integrated with Microsoft Active Directory (MS AD) (using External Authentication Plugins) and Oracle Access Manager (OAM) with EBusiness Suite (EBS).

EBS/OAM logins for user synchronized from AD to OID work consistently and fast on one OAM/OID environment but not on another.

The first time, the login returns a message that the SSO login is not in sync with EBS and prompts to enter the EBS password.

After that, a subsequent login retry no longer prompts for the password and the login succeeds.

Most (~99%) of the time, the login works on the second try.

The oam.log shows:

The corresponding (ecid) entries in the level 1 debug OID server log shows the ldapcompare operation succeeds (RESULT=6), but has a long delay (e.g., OPtime=8024000 micro sec):

Checking further ldapcompare operations in the OID log shows the OPtime values vary, for example:
