    Directory server authentication

    Hi all,

    I am trying to install Oracle Internet Directory and I have some problems with the password. Any way, I did change the password using :

    iodpasswd connect=DB_NAMe
    current password: ods
    new password: password
    confirm password: password
    password set.


    any way when I go to net manager to perform entry management with OID and I got the invalid password:

    log in as: cn=orcladmin
    password: password

    which is the password I changed earlier but it doens't work.

    can someone please help.

    the default password for cn=orcladmin is welcome. Once, you log in with this credential, you can change the password.

    thomasp,

    I did try welcome as well before I post the question in here and it doesn't work. I am on the Net Manager, trying to add the new SERVICE NAMING for directory server authentication


    also, I am a bit confused, why Oracle let me change the password using:

    oidpasswd command and I set my password to "password" and then the authentication is "welcome"


    please advise

    ok. I'm assuming you are on 10G.

    what was the error message that you got when you tried to connect?

    I am on 9i and I think it's the same.

    I just can't create new SERVICE NAMING for directory server authentication using Net Manager, it kept telling me the wrong user and password.

    As I mentioned earlier, I did change the password using:

    oidpasswd

    and I try the new password as cn=orcladmin/password, orcladmin/password, cn=orclamin/welcome, orcladmin/welcome.

    but no luck

    My understanding for oidpasswd and what metalink says:

    WHAT oidpasswd CHANGES ----------------------
    oidpasswd connects as odscommon and uses the role ODS_SERVER with the original password to do the following:
    1. changes the password for the ODS user for the OID schema database. 2. updates the SYSTEM.ODSINSTANCES table with the new, encrypted password for ODS. 3. changes the password for the ODS_SERVER role to the new password. 4. updates the $ORACLE_HOME/ldap/admin/oidpwdr file with the encrypted password.

    So, I dont think this has anything to do with connecting to Net Manager as cn=orcladmin
    username:cn=orcladmin
    password:welcome

    Another workaround would be if you have direct access to the database, login to the ORASSO schema (as ORASSO) with SQL*plus or whatever tool you use, and run the following script from the WWSSO_OID_INTEGRATION package. this will allow you to reset the password for the orcladmin user. (just use null for the nickname...)
    Code:
    PROCEDURE reset_passwd
    (
    p_user IN VARCHAR2
    ,p_subscriber_nickname IN VARCHAR2
    ,p_newpwd IN VARCHAR2
    );

    sorry, this schema and package exists only in 10G.

    Can you log in to the Oracle Directory Manager with this username and password?

    Just curious, does cn=guest/guest get you in?
