Oracle Internet Directory - Version 9.0.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Moving users in Active Directory (AD) are creating new and duplicated user entries in Oracle Internet Directory (OID).

For example, create a new AD user called "test" and let is sync or bootstrap into OID.

In AD, right-click on the user "test" and select "move," and move the user to a different container, which
does exist in OID and is part of the domainrules mapping in the sync profile.

In OID now there are duplicate users for the same "test" user, i.e.

User in AD:
dn: CN=test,OU=NewOU,DC=mycompany,DC=com

Corresponding users in OID:
(old entry) dn: cn=test,ou=OldOU,cn=users,dc=mycompany,dc=com
(new entry) dn: cn=test,ou=NewOU,cn=users,dc=mycompany,dc=com

The profile trace shows no error but includes the following message (in bold below):
DN : cn=test,ou=NewOU,cn=users,dc=mycompany,dc=com
No value in entry for attribute specified in OID matching filter. Check if mapping rules in the profile are complete.
