Problem in configuring OAS4OS in two node cluster env.

Symptoms

Documentation reference:

Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Authentication Services for Operating Systems 11g Release 1(11.1.1)
3.3 Configuring Oracle Authentication Services for Operating Systems on the Client


A 2-node load-balanced Oracle Internet Directory (OID) environment has been installed and  Oracle Authentication Services for Operating Systems (OAS4OS) is being configured to use this High Availability OID environment.

After running config_OIDclient.sh on the client machine, the client is only attempting to access that OID node and requests are not being load balanced between the two OID nodes.

Steps to reproduce

1.Run 'config_OIDserver.sh' script in each OID instance (both OID Node 1 and OID Node 2). Input the OID component name (e.g. oid1, oid2) and the OID realm when prompted.

2. After running that script, the 'config_OIDclient.sh' script is created in each OID instance.

3. Copy the 'config_OIDclient.sh' script from either of the OID instances to the client machine and run the script.

4. The client then only attempts to connect to the single OID server from which the 'config_OIDclient.sh' script was copied. There is no load balancing of requests between the two OID nodes.
