OID 11g Ldapd Server Process Repeatedly Crashing and Restarting After Setting High Level Debug (orcldebugflag=117440511) with Log Error: Recieved signal = 11, shutting down (Doc ID 1984009.1)

Oracle Internet Directory - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Clustered Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 11g, e.g. version with latest OID Bundle Patch applied, and using OID Multimaster (MMR) Replication between the clusters.

OID ldapd server process is crashing and restarting repeatedly.

After enabling logging to orcldebugflag=117440511(*) observed the repeated crashes when checking server logs, every couple minutes:

The error occurs on random OID entries (OID is used for tnsnames / database servicename entries only).

All nodes were rebooted after a mandatory OS patching, and the crashing temporarily stopped on one of the nodes only, but returned soon after.

Also cleared out and purged HIQ, as the error occurs immediately after an update to asr_chg_log.

Tried a relink of OID/LDAP client and server, to no help.

After further testing, OID is only crashing with the debug level value set high (117440511) and the replication server running.

It no longer crashes once debug is set to low level (1).

(*)Note: One requirement is to capture log data (including all operations, the client IP, the connection DN, the DN that was operated on, result code, search filters, etc), and this is the reason why the high level debug was applied.


Set high level debug in OID server.
