Missing SID_LIST_ value left of equation for SID description in LISTENER.ORA

Access the listener.ora file (example vi /home/oracle/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1/network/admin/listener.ora) and make sure that the lines of code in LISTENER.ORA containing SID_DESC or SID begin with SID_LIST_ on the left side of the equation. Once you've done that, you can try the restart to then notice that the services become READY

HOW TO provision AD group membership from OpenIDM

OpenIDMICFAD-connector

June 15, 2018
Created by: Daniel Redfern
For what I see, there's not too many supportive documentations out there that will demonstrate how provision AD group membership with the ICF connector using OpenIDM. The use of the special ldapGroups attribute is not explained anywhere in the Integrators guides to to the date of this blog. This quick blog identifies the tasks required to provision AD group membership from OpenIDM to AD using the LDAP ICF connector. However this doesn't really explain what ldapGroups actually does and there's no real worked example of how to go from an Assignment to ldapGroups to an assigned group in AD. I wrote up a wiki article for my own reference: AD group memberships automatically to users This is just my view, others may disagree, but I think the implementation experience could be improved with some more documentation and a more detailed example here.
