AD Password Filter Installation Fails "Error occured while connecting to Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 11g in SSL mode" (Doc ID 1914529.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 30, 2023

Applies to:

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


Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g IDM version (OID, DIP)
Password Filter for Microsoft Active Directory Installation.

Attempting to install the "Oracle Password Filter 11g for Microsoft Active Directory" on a 64-bit Domain Controller
the process fails with this error:

  "Error occured while connecting to Oracle Internet Directory in SSL mode,
  please refer to the %TEMP%\ldapbind.log file...."

However, this log file is not actually getting created.

LSA registry entries under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\orclidmpwf are NOT created.

Wireshark trace showed no connection attempt was made to OID

The ldapbindssl.exe is working fine, which is confusing as password installer is failing with SSL errors.
ldabindssl.exe reports that SSL communication between AD and OID/DIP is working fine.

  C:\Program Files (x86)\oracle\ADPasswordFilter>ldapbindssl.exe
  -p 3131
  -D "cn=svc oid_ad_dip_sync,cn=Users, dc=<COMPANY_NAME>,dc=com"
  Please enter the password for OID :
  Connecting server in SSL Mode
  Checking if SSL is enabled
  SSL not enabled.
  SSL being enabled...
  Binding ...
  Bind Successful
