When trying to Create an Instance-Specific Configuration Entry in OID 11g
'opmnctl createcomponent -componentType OID' fails with the following error while ' cn=oid2,cn=osdldapd,cn=subconfigsubentry' does not exist.

opmnctl createcomponent -componentType OID -componentName oid2 -adminPort 7002 -Db_info "<DB Host>:<DB_Listener Port:<DB Service Name>"
Command failed: A directory for component oid2 already exists. Delete this component first.
opmnctl createcomponent: failed.


'opmnctl deletecomponent -componentType OID' fails also.

opmnctl deletecomponent -componentType OID -componentName oid2 -adminPort 7002
Command failed: Instance asinst_1 does not contain component oid2.
opmnctl deletecomponent: failed.

ldapsearch verifies that 'cn=oid2,cn=osdldapd,cn=subconfigsubentry' does not exist.

ldapsearch -D cn=orcladmin -q -b "cn=oid2,cn=osdldapd,cn=subconfigsubentry" -s base "objectclass=*"
Please enter bind password:
ldap_search: No such object
ldap_search: matched: cn=osdldapd, cn=subconfigsubentry

 opmnctl status -l does not show 'oid2' component.
