Symptoms

In an HA environment where a virtual hostname is used.

Attempted to start the odisrv process as follows:

   oidctl connect=asdb server=odisrv instance=1 configset=1 flags="port=3060" start
   oidctl connect=asdb server=odisrv instance=1 configset=1 flags="host=infra port=3060" start
   oidctl connect=asdb server=odisrv instance=1 configset=1 start

(Each attempt, first cleared the record with serverid=7 off the ods_process table.)

For each attempt, odisrv process does not start, and odisrv01.log does not get updated.
oidmon.log does not report any errors other than a killed of the process.
