OID 10g Hangs If a User Is Created With Attribute pwdpolicysubentry
Last updated on SEPTEMBER 21, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Internet Directory - Version 10.1.4.0.1 to 10.1.4.3 [Release 10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
OID hangs if a new user is created and the attribute pwdpolicysubentry is included. This attribute is used to specify that a custom password policy is in use for a user entry.
Example using an LDIF file and ldapadd:
The following LDIF file shows the attribute pwdpolicysubentry that is being assigned to the user "testuser":
pwdpolicysubentry: cn=Test Custom Policy, cn=pwdPolicies, cn=Common,
Adding this entry to OID hangs, and a subsequent attempt bind is no longer successful:
$ORACLE_HOME/bin/ldapadd -h oidserver -p 389 -D cn=orcladmin -w welcome1 -v -f create_user.ldif
--> this hangs
$ORACLE_HOME/bin/ldapbind -h oidserver -p 389
--> this hangs
After restarting the server, an ldapbind is successful again.
Example using Oracle Directory Manager:
- Use the Create Like option to create a new user entry.
- Add attribute pwdpolicysubentry.
- An ldapbind hangs after this.
- In the oidldapd log, the following error is seen:
sgslunlListen: Bind failed (port=389), OS error=(98)
- After restarting the server, an ldapbind is successful again.
