Multiple LDAP Connection Attempts If Incorrect Credentials Entered in EDQ Causing a Lockout (Doc ID 2486989.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 13, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Enterprise Data Quality - Version 9.0.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle Enterprise Data Quality (EDQ) can be configured to use multiple Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) servers for a realm - either using an explicit list or via Domain Name Server (DNS) discovery.

When an attempt is made to connect to a server, the integration tries each in turn until success.

This is done even for an authentication attempt resulting in an error during username/password validation at login time.

For example: If there are five LDAP servers and a bad password, there will be five tries which can lead to an Active Directory (AD) account lockout.
