Bulkload Does Not Import Special Characters Correctly
Last updated on JULY 01, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Internet Directory - Version: 9.0.4 to 10.1.4.3 - Release: 10gR1 to 10gR3
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
- Have an entry in OID with German umlauts.
- Dump the entry into an LDIF file:
ldifwrite -c ASPRD1 -b "cn=xyz,cn=Users,dc=oracle,dc=com" -f xyz.ldif
- Modify the file somewhat to avoid the duplication error that would result from reloading the entry into OID. For example, change the DN in the first line, and any other related attributes.
- Use the bulkload utility to import the xyz.ldif into OID:
bulkload.sh -connect ASDEV01 -restore -check -generate xyz.ldif
bulkload.sh -connect ASDEV01 -restore -load
