OUD 12c Global Administrator Lost / Missing (Doc ID 2630732.1)

Last updated on MARCH 02, 2021

Applies to:

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


Replication is enabled and working between two instances.

The global administrator user (cn=admin, cn=administrators, cn=admin data) is missing:

./ldapsearch -p <OUD_ADMIN_PORT> -D "cn=<DS_ADMIN>" -j <PASSWORD_FILE> --useSSL -X -b "cn=Administrators,cn=admin data" objectclass=*
dn: cn=Administrators,cn=admin data
cn: Administrators
description: Group of identities which have full access.
objectClass: top
objectClass: groupofurls
memberURL: ldap:///cn=Administrators,cn=admin data??one?(objectclass=*)

The "cn=admin, cn=administrators, cn=admin data" entry is also missing from the admin-backend.ldif config file.

Because of this, cannot configure replication via dsreplication as it asks for the Global Administrator user and password.
