Symptoms

 If you are a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) customer, there are multiple sections in this document that need not be performed by you. Please log a Service Request in My Oracle Support for Oracle to do this for you.

In OIM console, when modifying the common name of  a user, an error message box pops up stating "Either the RDN Common Name of the user is being modified or the user container is changed without referential integrity being enabled on target LDAP Directory"

In domain diagnostic log, you can see following exception:

####<Nov 9, 2011 5:26:20 PM EST> <Error> <oracle.iam.ldapsync.impl.util> <host.domain.com> <WLS_OIM1> <[ACTIVE] ExecuteThread: '4' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'> <xelsysadm> <> <60bf2988c4ae482b:763cc967:1336ca9c6ab:-8000-000000000000742c> <1320877580584> <IAM-3010190> <Either the RDN Common Name of the user is being modified, or the user container is changed without referential integrity being enabled on target LDAP directory.>
