after updating a portal 9 environment to WAS 8.5.5 FP12, I was not able to login anymore with any user…
The error in the log:
com.ibm.websphere.wim.exception.EntityNotFoundException: CWWIM4527E The LDAP entry 'uid=wpadmin,o=defaultWIMFileBasedRealm' was not found: ' javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: [LDAP: error code 32 - No Such Object]; remaining name 'uid=wpadmin,o=defaultWIMFileBasedRealm'; resolved object com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtx@17514e8b'. at com.ibm.ws.wim.adapter.ldap.LdapConnection.getAttributes (LdapConnection.java:1267) at com.ibm.ws.wim.adapter.ldap.LdapConnection. checkAttributesCache(LdapConnection.java:1573)
Rolling back FP12 to FP11 resolved the issue.
This issue occurs when using Domino in combination with a federated repository configuration set to base “root”. There are several good reasons to use the “root” base entry when dealing with a Domino LDAP…
IBM introduced a change in FP12 to allow setting of “root” as base entry for Active Directory also! It seems that something got broken within the part for Domino.
There is a workaround for this:
- Change the order of the federated repository in wimconfig.xml to set the LDAP entry before the file based entry
or IBM already created a technote for this issue. The ifix for this issue is called “188.8.131.52-WS-WAS-IFPI88438” …
After this everything works as expected.
