  1.- Create a DPS instance
      $ dpadm create -p 2391 -P 2637 /ODS11.1.5.0/local/DPSinst2

  2.- Start DPS instance and check it is running
      $ dpadm start /ODS11.1.5.0/local/DPSinst2         
  3.- Modify conf.ldif to set a listenAddress
  $ dpconf set-ldap-listener-prop -p 2391
  listen-address: listen-port:2391

  4.- Stop and Start DPS instance to take effect the changes
$ dpadm stop
$ dpadm start /ODS11.1.5.0/local/DPSinst2

@ bash-3.00# pwd
bash-3.00# more /ODS11.1.5.0/local/DPSinst2/config/conf.ldif | grep listen*
listenPort: 2391
listenPort: 2637

5.- Register DPS instance using dsccreg add-server

bash-3.00# ./dsccreg add-server -h localhost --description "My Proxy

1.- Stop DPS instance and delete listenAddress manually in conf.ldif file.

3.- Stop DPS and set listenAddress manually in conf.ldif file
