Hi everyone, just a quick post on an issue I encountered with OVD 11g (188.8.131.52) and how it handles LDAP filtering.
For this post let’s use the following DN as our example:
“cn=OVD (11g), dc=us, dc=oracle, dc=com”
This is a perfectly valid DN, however, it has been discovered that DNs with parenthesis have issues within OVD. Within the logs you may see “Bad LDAP Filter” errors:
! com.octetstring.vde.util.DirectoryException: LDAP Error 2 : Bad LDAP
