The application is configured to use LDAP authentication with the database.

The database wallet password was successfully regenerated in the past using dbca with cn=orcladmin and there were no issues.

Since that time, an Oracle Internet Directory (OID) realm password policy has been configured and enabled. The OID password policy expires passwords after 6 months, so near this time dbca was run again to regenerate the password. This succeeded but after this EUS users cannot login to the database, they get error:

ORA-28030: Server encountered problems accessing LDAP directory service

Attempts to follow <Document 403079.1> 'ORA-28030 After Database's OID Password Expired' fail at Step 3 with errors:

Unable to create database entry in the directory service.
TNS-4409: Directory service error caused by: oracle.net.config.DirectoryServiceException:
TNS-4405: General error caused by: oracle.net.ldap.NNFLException

Now dbca regenerate password can no longer be executed either.
