OID 11g Instance Fails to Start or Restarts Over and Over
Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Internet Directory - Version 18.104.22.168.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
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:
