Oracle Internet Directory Configuration failed. Please see log file:******/oid/ldap/log/oidca.log

Result code for launching of configuration assistant is: 1
The OUICA command is launched from ******/oid/oui/bin/ouica.sh.
Error:*** Alert: Some of the configuration assistants failed. It is strongly recommended that you retry the configuration ass
istants at this time. Not successfully running any "Recommended" assistants means your system will not be correctly configure
d. Select the failed assistants and click the ‘Retry’ button to retry them. ***

1) create new listener (i.e listener_oid) in different port (i.e 1522), start it.
2) modify tnsnames.ora so that connect to metadata repository database with new port (above)
3) register metadata repository database with new listener
alter system set local_listener=’new_listener’ scope=both;
4) re-try that failed "Internet Directory Configuration Assistant"

Always make things smarter!
