Changes

During installation of OAS 10g (10.1.2.0.2) on HP server, the OID configuration assistant failed; OUI was terminated unsuccessfully.

The OID config assistant was completed applying solution documented in:
    Note <<372107.1>> Unable To Start OID Processes on Unix - No oidldapd01.log

Installation process resumed using configToolCommands utility; which ended fine and OID started.

However, then OC4J_SECURITY would not start.
