Last updated on SEPTEMBER 11, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Unified Directory - Version 188.8.131.52.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The Global Configuration setting for the "lookthrough-limit" was set to 300,000. The number of objects in the userRoot backend is roughly 240,000 entries. When objectclass=* queries are run, limit exceeded errors occur even though the number of entries doesn't exceed the limit.
Here's a sample of the query and error:
$ ldapsearch -h localhost -x -LLL -b dc=example,dc=com objectclass=* dn |grep "^dn:" |wc -l
Administrative limit exceeded (11)
Additional information: This search operation has checked the maximum of 300000 entries for matches
