Duplicate Entries in OID After Patchset (Doc ID 338013.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version:
This problem can occur on any platform.


Duplicate user entries are shown in OID since patching to
The entries may be synchronized from Active Directory with DIP and contain parentheses ( ) in the DNs.

When the username is queried in Oracle Directory Manager search 2 entries are retrieved.
If one is selected and deleted the operation seems to succeed.

The remaining entry cannot be edited, error java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 0 occurs.

It cannot be deleted either - the operation seems to succeed but if the search is run again the entry is still returned.

Underlying object data shows that the entries in ct_orclnormdn differ because one of the rows has the parentheses characters escaped e.g.

cn=simon waterfield \(norway\),cn=users,dc=corp,dc=oracle,dc=com

cn=simon waterfield (norway),cn=users,dc=corp,dc=oracle,dc=com
