Ldap server (oidldapd) does not start.

Using OID port 389; ran root.sh for oidldap root ownership and setuid permissions.

Only errors in oidmon.log are as follows (with or without tracing):

In OID 9.0.4 (AS 10g), no oidldapd*.log created in $ORALE_HOME/ldap/log, or if any are create, there are no errors, and perhaps just a typical shutdown.

In OID 9.2, may have followed <Note: 159031.1> to clean up OID objects, then <Note:202671.1> to run oidca against an existing database, but oidldapd will not start, with same symptoms above.
