Symptoms

When attempting to add a user to a group via OIDDAS, searching for an existing user fails to find it.

From the main page in OIDDAS, go to Directory > Groups > search for a group > select that group > click Manage > Edit > Add User > search for a user. The OID debug log will show 0 entries returned:

BEGIN
2007/11/02:11:23:41 * ServerWorker (REG):7
ConnID:24415 * mesgID:265 * OpID:264 * OpName:search
ConnIP:141.146.30.110 ConnDN: cn=john_egan,l=amer,dc=oracle,dc=com
INFO :gslfseADoSearch BASE = dc=oracle,dc=com FILTER =

11:23:41 * INFO : gsleswrASndResult2 RESULT = 0 nentries=0
END


The search SHOULD look like this:

BEGIN
2007/11/02:11:22:16 * ServerWorker (REG):7
ConnID:24415 * mesgID:1053 * OpID:1052 * OpName:search

INFO :gslfseADoSearch BASE = dc=oracle,dc=com FILTER =
(&(objectclass=inetorgperson)(|(mail=*kuljit.jassar*)(givenname=*kuljit.jassar
*)(sn=*kuljit.jassar*)(cn=*kuljit.jassar*))) #REQDATTR = 9 scope =2
11:22:19 * INFO : gsleswrASndResult2 RESULT = 0 nentries=1
END
