OUD11g: MOD on Attribute with Subtype Fails with Result=67 (Not Allowed on RDN) (Doc ID 2038279.1)

Last updated on MAY 17, 2018

Applies to:

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


When an entry has an attribute with a subtype (e.g., ou;lang-ja) and its leftmost RDN is the same attribute without the subtype (e.g., ou),
modifying the attribute with a subtype fails with RESULT=67 (Not Allowed on RDN).


[Test Case]

Product: Oracle Unified Directory
OS: Linux 64-bit


1. Create the following entry.


1. Modify the "ou;lang-ja" attribute. It fails with Result Code 67.

# ./ldapmodify -p 4389 -D "cn=directory manager" -w secret12
dn: ou=0001,ou=deptinfo,dc=example,dc=com

Processing MODIFY request for ou=0001,ou=deptinfo,dc=example,dc=com
MODIFY operation failed
Result Code: 67 (Not Allowed on RDN)
Additional Information: Entry ou=0001,ou=deptinfo,dc=example,dc=com cannot
be modified because the change to attribute ou would have removed a value
used in the RDN

On ODSEE, this issue did not occur.
