OID to AD Server Chaining (SC): Ldapbinds with Server Chained Users to OID Fail With: ldap_bind: Invalid credentials (Doc ID 2252135.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 14, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 10.1.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Server Chaining (SC) configured in Oracle Internet Directory (OID) for Microsoft (MS) Active Directory (AD) access.

Searching the AD users work, however ldapbinds for AD server chained users via OID with valid/working AD passwords fail with:

ldapbind -h <OID_HOSTNAME> -p <OID_PORT> -D "CN=<AD_USERNAME>,OU=Users,ou=<OU>,cn=users,dc=<COMPANY>,dc=com" -q
Please enter bind password:
ldap_bind: Invalid credentials

Example OID 11g low level debug log shows:
