DIP AD to OID Synchronization Using DirSync Approach Does Not Work if Any Search Filter is Included in the Profile. DIP Log Shows: error in execution of Agent thread: DirSync | ODIException: Failure During Search (Doc ID 2125532.1)

Last updated on MARCH 04, 2019

Applies to:

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


Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 11g with Directory Integration Platform (DIP) Microsoft (MS) Active Directory (AD) to OID import synchronization profile using the DirSync approach (instead of the more common USNChanged method) stops working as soon as a search filter is included in the profile, even if the filter is valid such as searchfilter==(objectclass=person) for example.

It starts working once the search filter is removed through Enterprise Manager (EM) Fusion Middleware (FMW) Control console.

The following stack is observed in the wls_ods1 diagnostic.log after introducing the searchfilter:
