I have been reading and doing some testing about LDAP and I am little bit confusing about startup the LDAP instance:

any way, I have started oidmon succesfully. the very first question is when I start oidmon, was oidldap.exe suppose to start at the same time??? I thought oidldapd.exe suppose to start when we start up LDAP instance but in this case I haven't started up LDAP instance yet. So when I started up LDAP instance, it's froze and not doing much. below is the command I use to started LDAP instance:

oidctl connect=SID server=oidldapd instance=1 start

can someone please tell me what's going on???

also what is the instance parameter do ????
