OUD11g - 'oud-Setup --cli --rootUserPasswordFile' on Windows Creates an Invalid Password (Doc ID 2137637.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 16, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Unified Directory - Version 11.1.2.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Unable to authenticate to the server after performing scripted setup (Command Line Setup) of OUD Directory using example below command.   Attempting to use dsconfig, ldapsearch or status command[s], even ODSM was failing even when the correct password was provided.

 

Example :

D:\$MW_HOME\fmw\Oracle_OUD1\oud-setup --cli --baseDN "dc=<SUFFIX_DN>" --addBaseEntry --ldapPort <LDAP_PORT> --adminConnectorPort <ADMIN_PORT> --enableWindowsService --doNotStart --ldapsPort <LDAPS_PORT> --generateSelfSignedCertificate --rootUserDN "cn=<DS_ADMIN>" --rootUserPasswordFile "c:\$PATH_TO\<PWD_FILE>" --serverTuning autotune --importTuning autotune --no-prompt

When using dsconfig and providing the same password file path as used when performing oud-setup, then dsconfig / status command works.  Please note this was observed on a Windows platform. Note here password in the file <PWD_FILE> which is "<PASSWORD_EXAMPLE>" is used as an example.

NOTE: The importance is not the file path, it is regarding the password file content. In this case Example password file name was <PWD_FILE>.

Failing Scenario:

 

Note here password in the file <PWD_FILE> which is "<PASSWORD_EXAMPLE>" for example was given as input for Password prompt in below command and it failed.

C:\$INST_PATH\asinst_4\OUD\bat>status.bat

>>>> Specify Oracle Unified Directory LDAP connection parameters

 

Administrator user bind DN [cn=<DS_ADMIN>]:

 

Password for user 'cn=<DS_ADMIN>':
Unable to connect to the server at "HOSTNAME" on port <ADMIN_PORT>
