OID 11g - Oracle Internet Directory Entries Are Not Getting Replicated Across When Added Using Ldif Files (Doc ID 2334000.1)

Last updated on MAY 14, 2021

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


Oracle Internet Directory entries are not getting replicated across when added using ldif files.

Replication between 2 internet directory servers is not taking place when entries are added from Server 2 manually using ldif files and ldapadd. Both servers operate in a Supplier-Consumer mode.

1. Does not work - Entries added through ldapadd using ldif files from Server 1 are available on Server 1 but do not get replicated to Server 2.
2. Does not work - Entries added through ldapadd using ldif files from Server 2 are available on Server 2 but do not get added to Server 1.

As per the Customer's scenario,

When any entry is added to the OID servers, it is not getting replicated across. The ldapadd command works successfully without any errors as mentioned below,

 This entry, however, does not replicate to the other OID server. In this case adding the entry from the second server does not replicate to the first one.

Replication between Server 1 and Server 2 should happen for the entries added in Server1 or Server 2.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create an user entry in the ldif file.
2. Run the ldapadd command specifying the above ldiffile as an argument.
Example: oracle@<CONNECT_STRING> ldapadd -D "cn=orcladmin" -w <PASSWORD> -h <OID_HOSTNAME> -p <PORT> -v -f <FILENAME>.ldif

Due to this issue, replication between 2 directory servers is not taking place.
