OID and HTTP_Server starts successfully, but OC4J_SECURITY fails to start:

opmnctl startproc process-type=OC4J_SECURITY
opmnctl: starting opmn managed processes...
--> Process (pid=716846)
time out while waiting for a managed process to start
The OC4J~OC4J_SECURITY~default_island~1 log file shows no error, only:
10/03/17 11:07:45 Start process
The following error is produced by DCM:
The OracleAS Repository API threw an exception when obtaining the connect string to the Metadata Repository
Check the exception thrown by the Repository API for resolution information.
Some common causes of this problem are as follows:
OID is not running or unavailable
the ias.properties file is misconfigured with incorrect OID connection information
OID permissions are incorrectly defined
Base Exception:
Unable to establish connection to the Oracle Internet Directory Server ldap://xxxxx01_vir:389/. Base Exception : javax.naming.CommunicationException: xxxxx01_vir:389 [Root exception is java.net.UnknownHostException: xxxxx01_vir]


The SSO server was taken out of a cluster for testing and the ias.properties file was modified to work with another OID server.
