OID 10g: Creating New Realm in OIDDAS Results in an Incorrect Realm DN, e.g.: dc=xyz,dc=abc,dc=com Instead of the Desired dc=xyz,dc=com (Doc ID 1955556.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 10.1.2 to 10.1.4 [Release 10gR2 to 10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 10g, e.g., 10.1.4.3, integrated with Oracle Single Sign-On (OSSO) and Delegated Administrative Sevices (DAS or OIDDAS).

Scenario:
Existing default realm DN is dc=us,dc=abc,dc=com, i.e., a three level container.

Need to build a new realm but a two level container DN of dc=xyz,dc=com.


When going into the OIDDAS Realm Management section, it only allows to add a short name of the new realm, and entering xyz as desired, it then creates the realm within the previous/default realm root, with the incorrect three level container DN of:

   dc=xyz,dc=abc,dc=com

Instead of the desired two level DN of:

   dc=xyz,dc=com


Note: Reviewed <Document 1930858.1> (How to Create a New Context in OID 10g for Tnsnames Resolution?), however as noted therein, that procedure is not sufficient as it does not create a true realm that can work with SSO/OIDDAS.
