OID 11g Instance Fails to Start or Restarts Over and Over (Doc ID 1684307.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 11.1.1.7.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Unable to connect to OID server.  All commandline attempts fail with "Cannot connect to the LDAP server"

A review of the OID logs in Oracle_Instance/diagnostics/logs/OID/oid1, you may find the oidldapd process dies and restarts over and over (many oidldapd01sXXXX.logs created with different PID #s, indicating that OID is dying and restarting.  Also oidldapd_stack files generated.)

OID may work for a few moments once is first starts up but then begins to fail.

Found only the following messages in the oidldapd logs:

BEGIN
 ConnID:0 mesgID:2 OpID:1  OpName:search ConnIP:::ffff:10.10.10.10 ConnDN:Anonymous

END



Changes

 Setup TNS names resolution with OID.
