Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version to [Release 10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle Internet Directory (OID) Version
Using Single Sign-On (SSO) configured for Windows Native Authentication (WNA).

Per <Note 469747.1>, for SSO/WNA to work with Internet Explorer (IE) from Vista clients, the JDK version 1.4.2_18 is required.

Since replacing the shipped JDK version with JDK version 1.4.2_18, OID now fails to start.

The oidldapd01.log shows os error = 3:

2008/09/03:10:35:52 * DispatcherListener:2 * WARNING : DispatcherListener : Shutting down
2008/09/03:10:35:52 * ProcessDispatcher:1 * WARNING : Shutting down
2008/09/03:10:35:52 * DispatcherController:0 * Killed process pid = 12612
2008/09/03:10:35:57 * DispatcherController:0 * sgslupsCheckProcess: sigsend to pid 12612 failed,os error = 3
2008/09/03:10:35:57 * DispatcherController:0 * WARNING : DispatcherController : OiD LDAP server
exiting with status 0

Reverting back to the original JDK version (1.4.2_14) allows OID to start normally and work again.


With the newer JDK version installed, and temporarily starting OID with high debug level (using oidmon/oidctl commands), the resulting $ORACLE_HOME/ldap/log/oidmon.log shows an additional error on

2008/09/29:11:40:25 * oidmon_<hostname>:0 * sgslupsCheckProcess: sigsend to pid 8472 failed, os error = 3
