CWWIM4547E occurs when attempting to write to secondary LDAP

Technote (troubleshooting)


When WebSphere Portal fails over to the secondary LDAP server, you are unable to perform any write operations.


The following error is observed in SystemOut.log

00000031 exception     E checkWritePermission
OperationNotSupportedException: CWWIM4547E  The write operations are not allowed on secondary LDAP server 'ldaps://<hostname:port>'.


By default, the Virtual Member Manager (VMM) component of WebSphere Portal will not write to a secondary LDAP server.

Resolving the problem

Update the VMM configuration to set the parameter allowWriteToSecondaryServers to true.

Modify the relevant LDAP repository in the wimconfig.xml to add the parameter and set it to true:

<config:repositories xsi:type="config:LdapRepositoryType" adapterClassName="" id="<LDAP_ID>"
<config:ldapServerConfiguration primaryServerQueryTimeInterval="15"
searchCountLimit="500" searchTimeLimit="120000" sslConfiguration="
NodeDefaultSSLSettings" allowWriteToSecondaryServers="true">

Note: In a standalone environment, modify the file on the Portal node under <wp_profile>/config/cells/<cellname>/wim/config/. In a clustered environment, modify the file on the Deployment Manager node under <dmgr_profile>/config/cells/<cellname>/wim/config.

Restart the application server to take effect.
