Applications may have a hardcoded bind DN that is not cn=<DS_ADMIN> where that bind DN needs to have the same privileges as the <DS_ADMIN> user. The default Root User - cn=<DS_ADMIN> - is created during instance creation. An alternate bind DN can be created for the <DS_ADMIN> user so that either the new bind DN or cn=<DS_ADMIN> can be used to authenticate with the same password and with the same privileges. Another solution is that a new Root User can be created which could have different privileges configured from the <DS_ADMIN> user.
This article goes over the steps of how to create an alternative / alternate bind DN for the <DS_ADMIN> user using OUDSM / ODSM or by command line.
