Authentication against OVD adapter configured with a view fails

[ERROR] [OVD-60060][com.octetstring.vde.operation.BindOperation] [tid: 40] [ecid:<ECID>] An error occurred.[[com.octetstring.vde.util.DirectoryException: LDAP Error 49 : [LDAP: error code 49 - Invalid Credentials]




 In OVD configure an adapter with a view.

Views allow applications to see different information in Oracle Virtual Directory. Views are defined by the distinguished names (DN) and IP addresses configured for the View. If an Adapter is enabled for a View, then only the DNs or IP Addresses configured in the View may see data from that Adapter. An Adapter can be enabled for one or more Views. A user that is a member of a View can only see information from Adapters that are enabled to the same View.

In previous versions of OVD(, it is possible to create a view and configure a user DN for that view. For example: cn=user1,cn=users,dc=com

In OAM, configure the Authentication Identity Store, then it is possible to specify the cn=user1,cn=users,dc=com to connect to OVD and authenticate users specific to the adapter with the view.
