Last updated on APRIL 19, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Unified Directory - Version 11.1.2.3.170117 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In the process of upgrading from ODSEE to OUD facing a problem with a custom attribute that has a syntax of Binary. The attributes are related to an Entrust Certificate Authority.

In ODSEE, when searching for a particular object, it is returned as binary:

ldapsearch -h odseehost -b "ou=certificate authority,ou=example,c=ca" entrustPolicyCertificate=* entrustPolicyCertificate

content is returned as:

dn: ou=certificate authority,ou=example,c=ca
entrustPolicyCertificate:: MIIGSz...

In OUD, when searching for the same object, it is returned as:

ldapsearch -h oudhost -b "ou=certificate authority,ou=example,c=ca" entrustPolicyCertificate=* entrustPolicyCertificate

content is returned as:

dn: ou=certificate authority,ou=example,c=ca
entrustPolicyCertificate;binary:: MIIGSz...

The addition of the ;binary:: in the result is causing the verification tool (provided by the vendor) to fail, and thus unable to move ahead with the migration.
