 After configuring the LDAP server, the users and groups cannot be fetched from the EM

The following error shows up on the Admin Server

javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: [LDAP: error code 32 - The entry dc=<company>,dc=com specified as the search base does not exist in the Directory Server]; remaining name 'dc=<company>,dc=com'

The LDAP access works on the BPM Workspace, SOA worklist and Identitiy Service UI but only if the OPTIMIZE_SEARCH=true is set on the jps-config.xml

The above happens despite the user search base DN on the WLS console (Provider configuration) is set to CN=Users,dc=<company>,dc=com and group search base DN is set to CN=Groups,dc=<company>,dc=com
