When trying to start the Oracle Process Manager and Notification Server (OPMN) daemon or an OPMN-managed component such as OC4J using the opmnctl command-line option, the start fails as follows:

ORACLE_HOME/opmn/bin/opmnctl startall

opmnctl: starting opmn and all managed processes...
opmn id=LN21CNBEA:6302
1 of 2 processes started.

ias-instance id=compression.LN21CNBEA

--> Process (index=1,uid=1008673993,pid=0)
no port available from the port range
failed to start a managed process after the maximum retry limit
no port available from the port range
no port available from the port range

The same error occurs if just trying to start the OPMN daemon itself using:

opmnctl start
