Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 9.0.4 to 10.1.4 [Release 10gR1 to 10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Existing Oracle Internet Directory (OID) instance 1 is already running off the Default Configuration Set (Configset 0) on Non-SSL port number 389 and SSL port 636, for example.

Unable to start a second instance of OID, instance 2, using Configset 1 which has been changed to
have SSL Enable (orclsslenable) set to "SSL only" (no non-ssl usage), and the SSL port set to a new and unique port number of 6636, for example.

The $ORACLE_HOME/ldap/log/oidldapd02.log shows following error, reporting a conflict for port 389:

2009/09/04:14:27:33 * Main:0 * sgslunlListen: Bind failed (port=389), OS error=(98)
2009/09/04:14:27:33 * Main:0 * FATAL * main * Dispatcher Process unable to bind to port


Configset 1 was changed to use SSL only.
