C:\Oracle\Middleware\Oracle_IDM1\bin>oidctl connect=OIDDB server=oidrepld instance=1 componentname=oid1 flags="-h oidhost.mycompany.com -p 3060" start
oidctl:oidmon is not running on host=oidhost.mycompany.com, componentName=oid1
Waiting for a few seconds...
oidctl:Waiting for oidmon to start OIDREPLD (instance=1)
