Symptoms

After OID 11.1.1.2 binaries were installed and patched to 11.1.1.5 version, while running $ORACLE_HOME/bin/config.sh script the OID Configuration fails at "Start Oracle Internet Directory" step with error:

Error:
   Error creating ASComponent oid1.
Cause:
   An internal operation has failed: Failed to start the component



When this problem occurs, in the Install log we can see following sequence of errors:
