The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Have the Disaster Recovery (DR) site cluster nodes up and running fine.
2. Edit hosts on the OIM physical host and add an entry for the VIP (Virtual Internet Protocol) IP (Internet Protocol) address and hostname
3. Change the listen address for the <OIM Node> managed server to use the name from #2 above
4. Start that OIM node and it will fail with the above errors


Change the listen address for the managed server to use the name listed in the local hosts file which represents the VIP address on the host machine.
