Unable to access cn=changelog on directory server. Please enable changelog

SCENARIO:

+. OUD was installed and running fine. It was decided to configured DIP to use this OUD as backend Directory. In the process of registering ODIP with OUD, we must run dipConfigurator as above with all required details.

   Note that environment variables ORACLE_HOME, JAVA_HOME and WL_HOME must be set for running dipConfigurator. Here ORACLE_HOME must point to ODIP ORACLE_HOME and not OUD ORACLE_HOME.

 Example :

  export ORACLE_HOME=/refresh/home/Oracle/Middleware/IDM_IDM1 ---> This must be your DIP ORACLE_HOME

  export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk1.7.0_80                                     ---> Java path which was given during OUD/DIP install

  export WL_HOME=/refresh/home/Oracle/Middleware/wlserver_10.3   --> Weblogic Home

 

Note you must specify WLS Hostname , WLS user, OUD hostname, OUD non-ssl LDAP port , OUD LDAP user, OUD LDAP Admin port specific to your environment.
