Last updated on OCTOBER 13, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 10.1.2.0.2 to 10.1.4.3 [Release 10gR2 to 10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

1) You granted edit permissions to a user account which is not the orcladmin REALM administrator, ie. a delegated administrator or power user.
2) As that user can edit the userpassword attribute value for all the user accounts in the user repository, you want to prevent this power user from changing the REALM administrator's password (the one that you use to login into DAS, not the cn=orcladmin super user account).
