While creating a new Identity Management Realm in OID 11g with oidrealm.bat tool on Windows platform, the command failed to run and returned java.lang.NullPointerException message.

For example,

C:<ORACLE_HOME>\ldap\bin>oidrealm <OID_HOSTNAME> <OID_PORT> 'dc=<NEW_REALM>,dc=com'
Enter OID Admin Password:

The same command works fine on Linux platform.
