(Doc ID 2406349.1)

Last updated on MAY 31, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Agile PLM Framework - Version 9.3.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On the environment where LDAP having two servers and using a Loadbalancer IP for Agile to send requests to those two servers, some LDAP users can login only after 2nd/3rd attempt even the correct password is given.
Can see below error in application server log:

Error

java.lang.NullPointerException
  at com.agile.util.Scrambler.getHashAlgorithm(Scrambler.java:107)
  at com.agile.admin.security.userregistry.DBUserAdapter.checkPassword(DBUserAdapter.java:89)
  at com.agile.admin.security.userregistry.DBUserAdapter.validateCredentials(DBUserAdapter.java:858)
  at com.agile.admin.security.weblogic.WLSLoginModule.validate(WLSLoginModule.java:477)
  at com.agile.admin.security.weblogic.WLSLoginModule.login(WLSLoginModule.java:199)
  at com.bea.common.security.internal.service.LoginModuleWrapper$1.run(LoginModuleWrapper.java:110)
  at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)

See that when attempting to connect to the ldap server directly from Agile, one of the ldap server will give below error when configuration is attempted to save from Java Client:

Error

"Communication Error Please Make Sure the LDAP Server Is Accessible. Job Was Cancelled Due to This Error"
