Applies to:Oracle Internet Directory - Version: 126.96.36.199.0
This problem can occur on any platform.
Duplicate user entries are shown in OID since patching to 188.8.131.52.
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
