APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Per Java specifications, when an LDAP request is made with
    referrals set to ignore, the call will throw a
    PartialResultException if there are any referred attributes for
    the object being requested. This can prevent users from logging
    in.
    

Local fix

  • Set referrals=follow
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: VMM throws PartialResultException if    *
    *                      there are LDAP referral entities        *
    *                      present in the configured LDAP server.  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Login fails with PartialResultException if the LDAP referral
    setting is ignore and some attributes are referred in the LDAP
    server.
    

Problem conclusion

  • To allow login to the user even if referral is ignore, VMM
    needs to handle referral setting from the VMM side. To do
    that we need to configure one custom property with a value of
    ignore. With this VMM will ignore that exception and will
    allow user to login.
    
    Use the following CLI to configure the new custom property and
    give the value as ignore.
    
    $AdminTask setIdMgrCustomProperty { -id <ldap_repo_id > -name
    vmmHandleReferal -value ignore }
    
    $AdminConfig save
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.33, 8.0.0.9 and 8.5.5.3. Please refer to the
