Applies to:

Oracle Unified Directory - Version 11.1.2.3.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 11.1.2.3.1 version, Configuration

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
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.


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

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

Installed 11.1.2.2.0 and added entries with CAhintSMpassworddata using schema in 99-user.ldif file


BUSINESS IMPACT
-----------------------

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