Information in this document applies to any platform.


A number of new options have been provided to Oracle Internet Directory (OID) Server Chaining to support the diverse requirements of customers when using this feature. In particular the options deal with support for the use of SSL to connect to the external directory (LDAPS), and for chaining to Microsoft Active Directory (AD) a number of new options to control the naming attribute to use for user entries, the way complex user and group structures are mapped and simulation of the "orcluserv2" objectclass for user entries.

This document describes how these options can be configured and how they change the behaviour of server chaining.

In addition to the new Server Chaining features described in this document see <note 452385.1> OID Server Chaining & Enterprise User Security: Active Directory Password Change Notification Plug-in


These features are being made available in patchset version of Oracle Internet Directory. (and Higher)

If no action is taken then Server Chaining behaviour will remain the same as it was in version

Note that these new options in no way changes the list of Oracle components certified for use with OID Server Chaining. These options will, if used correctly, allow some features of other components to work with users and groups accessed via OID Server Chaining, other features may fail with unexpected errors.
