DIP Fails to Sync OU and its Entries from MS AD to OID. DIP Log Shows no Errors on OUs (Debugged Log Shows: Required attributes not found [<attribute name>].) (Doc ID 1967632.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 9.0.4 to 11.1.1 [Release 10gR1 to 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 11g and Directory Integration Platform (DIP) synchronizing from Microsoft (MS) Active Directory (AD) to OID.

Some users have been moved from one OU structure to another in AD, but OID has not synchronized those changes.

Also noticed that that OID structure does not match MS AD entirely.  Some of the entries, e.g. "OU=MyOU,DC=mycompany,DC=com" are currently sync'd correctly, but not all of the OU's under it are.  For example, the OU with an old Distinguished Name of:
   ou=ou1,ou=2ndOU,dc=mycompany,dc=com
Was moved in MS AD to:
   OU=ou1,OU=MyOU,DC=mycompany,DC=com
But this change did not sync to OID and the DN still exists in the old location in OID.

Already verified the AD profile does include OU on the searchfilter, e.g.:
   searchfilter=(|(objectclass=organizationalunit)(&(objectclass=user)(!(objectclass=computer))))

There are no OU related errors in the DIP wls_ods1-diagnostic.log file.
