Starting in OID release 9.0.4, the default value for Password Expiry Time is set to 5184000 (60 days). After 60 days from installation date, the password for the ODI server (and any other assigned passwords) will automatically expire.
If Directory Synchronization and/or Provisioning are running, the ODISRV process will attempt to process the active profiles. Soon after password expiration, this repeated trying will cause the DIP connector to exceed the max grace logins allowed and consequently the account is locked.
A view of the odisrv.trc file for each profile shows:
