Applies to:

Enterprise Manager for Fusion Middleware - Version and later
Oracle Virtual Directory - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Fusion Middleware installation for versions 11g and 12c. After enabling domain wide administration port, it is impossible to search for users or groups in the "Create System Grant" in EM console. At the specific moment of searching for a Grantee in the security handling pages, the AdminServer produces a "LDAP Error 2 : simple bind failed" error:

If "Enable Administration Port" is turned off in domain settings of WLS console, it is possible search for users and groups to add system grants in Fusion Middleware Control without any problem.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1 - In WLS console go to domain settings and Enable Administration Port
2 - Go to Fusion Middleware Control ("/em")
3 - Expand node "WebLogic Domain"
4 - Right click on the name of your domain. In the pop-up window, go to "Security" -> "System Policies"
5 - In the "System Policies" window, press "Create ..." to create a new system security grant
6 - In the "Create System Grant" window change the list box to "Grant to -> Principal"
7 - In the new window press the "+Add" button to add a Grantee
8 - In the resulting pop-up window press the "Search roles" button (the little round button with a right triangle)
9 - The pop-up window remains empty and the log file shows the reported error
