PK71355; 6.1.0.19: Virtual Member Manager Federation Adapter Not Working

Download


Abstract

After migration, there is an EntityNotFoundException thrown when getting an attribute with extID in EntryMapping repository.

Download Description

PK71355 resolves the following problem:

ERROR DESCRIPTION:
With a freshly migrated IBM WebSphere Member Manager (WMM) to Virtual Member Manager (VMM) multiple-ldap setup, virtual member manager (VMM) does not find the user correctly specified extID if the extID is the "virtual extID" not the LDAP extID. After the user was queried in an alternative way (e.g. with LDAP extID or uniqueName), the lookup works.

LOCAL FIX:
none

PROBLEM SUMMARY:

USERS AFFECTED:
All users of IBM WebSphere Application Server V6.1 who use federated repositories
(Virtual Member Manager).

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
After migration, there is an EntityNotFoundException thrown when getting an attribute with extID in
EntryMapping repository.

RECOMMENDATION:
None

In EntryMapping repository, the extID is different with uniqueId. When trying to get an entity with extID, virtual member manager incorrectly takes the uniqueId in the EntryMapping repository as the extID to get attributes in LDAP, which causes EntityNotFoundException.

PROBLEM CONCLUSION:
The problem has been fixed. After entry mapping repositoy migration from WebSphere Member Manager (WMM) to Virtual Member Manager (VMM), there is no EntityNotFoundException when getting entity with extID.

The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix pack 6.1.0.23 and 7.0.0.3.
