My weblogic server is hosted on the HPUX 11.
When I (in WLS 8.1 SP2), I always see this error:
<Nov 17, 2004 8:24:39 PM EST> <Critical> <EmbeddedLDAP> <000000> <java.lang.NegativeArraySize
        at com.octetstring.vde.EntryChanges.readBytes(
        at com.octetstring.vde.EntryChanges.<init>(
        at com.octetstring.vde.replication.BackendChangeLog.getChange(

What is the cause of this exception ?

    Accepted Solution

    This was a bug with WL 7.x, and the fix was to remove the following files from the server's ldap/ldapfiles/ directory:


    The files will most likely be called EmbeddedLDAP.tran, EmbeddedLDAP.trpos, and EmbeddedLDAP.twpos.  The server can't be running when you delete these files, but since your server won't start I don't think it'll be a problem.

    You might want to try the old fix and see if it works for you.  I suggest copying those files to a temp directory instead of deleting them.
