AD Synched Entries Have Multiple Values for cn in OID (Doc ID 473118.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

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


AD synched entries show more than one value for "cn" in OID, even though the entry in AD has a single value. For example:

Search AD: 

ldapsearch -h oemfl-ad -p 389 -D "" -w <pwd> -s sub -b "CN=Andy Parkman,CN=Users,DC=OEMAD-ORL,DC=US,DC=ORACLE,DC=com" objectclass=*

cn=Andy Parkman

Search for the synched entry in OID:

ldapsearch -h urukai -D "cn=orcladmin" -w <pwd> -s base -b "cn=andy parkman,cn=Users,dc=us,dc=oracle,dc=com" objectclass=*

cn=andy parkman,cn=users,dc=us,dc=oracle,dc=com
cn=andy parkman
