Symptoms

An attempt is made to install and configure highly available Oracle Internet Directory (OID) following the Enterprise Deployment Guide for Identity Management 11g onto two dedicated nodes fronted by a load balancer.
The Oracle Identity Management binary home was installed and patched without error onto each local disk
When attempting to configure the first instance of OID, where the instance directory is located on an NFS-mounted disk, the configuration utility appears to successfully create the instance but then it fails to start.
The following error is logged to the $ORACLE_INSTANCE/diagnostics/logs/OID/tools/oid1/oidmon-0000.log :

 
Configuring the instance into the same logical directory but on a local disk succeeds.
It is possible to create and start an instance on the shared storage if non-privileged ports such as 3060 (>1024) are used - the error only occurs when using privileged ports such as 389.
The goal is to complete the configuration of the OID instance on shared storage without error.
