OID Oracle Password Filter in AD Creates Large Logs Causing Disk Full Condition, and Fails to Synchronize Passwords. OIDMain.log Shows: "OID is down..." / "MAX_RETRY LIMIT count is not updated: OID is down" / "Password updation failed in child process" (Doc ID 2120825.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 10.1.4 to 11.1.1 [Release 10gR3 to 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Oracle Internet Directory (OID) integrated with Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and the Oracle Password Filter.

Oracle Password Filter suddenly starts creating large logs, about 2GB of log per day, whereas before the log size was about 10MB per day.  These abnormal logs are exhausting the AD server storage, causing disk full condition.

Also the Password Filter stopped synchronizing passwords.

No changes in any of the layers involved.
