ODSEE - User Account Fails to Retrieve any Entries via the "ldapsearch" Command on Some Directory Server Instances (Doc ID 2366758.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 23, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A user entry created/imported from the sample "Example.ldif" (e.g. Example.ldif is located under INSTALL_ROOT/dsee7/resources/ldif) is able to successfully retrieve entries via ldapsearch against some Directory Server (DS) instances, but against other DS instances, the same ldapsearch command retrieves no data...

./ldapsearch -p <LDAP_PORT> -D uid=<EX_USER>,ou=People,dc=<EX_SUFFIX> -w - -b "dc=<EX_SUFFIX>" -s sub objectclass=* dn | wc -l



The default ACI "Anonymous read-search access" had been removed from the directory server instance without an understanding of the consequences of doing so.
