Symptoms

There is a unexpected  behavior during the local database sync for Siebel Remote users.

Baseline:

There are two LDAP accounts in the AD store. Among the two users, only User A is a Siebel user.
1. User A: LDAP User ID = USERA, LDAP Password = A0000
2. User B: LDAP User ID = USERB, LDAP Password = B0000

Replication Steps:

--------

-1. Configure LDAP for synchronization manager component

-2. Start the Siebel local database of User A.
-3. Select File > Synchronize Database.
-4. Enter the following information on the dialog.
- User ID = USERB
- LDAP Password = B0000
-5. Click the “OK” button.

 

Expected Result:
Synchronization will fail as User B's credentials were provided to sync the local database of User A.

Observed Behavior:
Synchronization starts for User A as LDAP authentication was successful with User B credentials.
