Multiple Values of Attribute with Binary Syntax Added to SINGLE-VALUE Custom Siteminder Attribute After Upgrade to Oracle Unified Directory (OUD) 11g PS3 (Doc ID 2157733.1)

On : version, Configuration

After upgrade to 11g PS3, multiple values of a custom Siteminder attribute are added to an entry when attempting to add/mod/del custom Siteminder attribute.  In the example below the Siteminder attribute is "CAhintSMpassworddata" which stores password history in the entry and has binary syntax with single-value configuration in the schema definition.

After upgrading, should be able to add/mod/del original custom attribute without additional occurrences of the attribute being created in the user entry.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

Installed and added entries with CAhintSMpassworddata using schema in 99-user.ldif file


Due to this issue, Siteminder logins fail since there is more than one value of cahintSMPasswordData in an entry.
