Information in this document applies to any platform.


After a restore of OID from a backup the oid processes will not start.

No oidldapd01 is created.

No ORA errors generated, nothing in the database Alert log.

Performed SQL queries to verify the existence of instances in the OID database:

select * from ds_attrstore where attrval like '%osdldapd%' and attrval like

select attrname,attrval from ds_attrstore where entryid=< entryid # from
previous output >;

All configset information was verified to be correct.

Attempted to start instance=2 configset=1. Observed the same behavior:

Verified permissions of oidldapd executable. Owned by root with SUID bit set.

Commented out TCP and UDP entries for LDAP in the /etc/services file and restarted unix inetd process.

Took opmnctl out of the picture and started oidmon manually, then used oidctl to attempt to start instances. This also produced the same errors in the oidmon.log.
