Symptoms

Oracle Access Manager 11g R2PS3 (OAM 11.1.2.3)

Customer is seeing backward slash on DN names after upgrading OAM to 11.1.2.3.

Customer has upgraded OAM instance from 11.1.2.2 to 11.1.2.3 and starting seeing backward slashes on the distinguished name.

Here are before and after:


DN before upgrade - CN=<USER_ID>\, <USER_NAME>,OU=<ORG_UNIT>,DC=<COMPANY>,dc=com
DN after upgrade - CN=<USER_ID>\\\, <USER_NAME>\,OU=<ORG_UNIT>\,DC=<COMPANY>\,dc=com

It is affecting custom code based on DN which is failing because of extra "/". Also the same error is observed via OIF logs:
