Checking if your Oracle DB has access to LDAP

SUMMARY

You want your database to use Oracle Internet Directory for external authentication and you would like to confirm connections will work beforehand.

MY SCENARIO

While installing ssodas 10.1.2.0.2 the sso configuration assistant fails. This was caused by a firewall between my database and Application server hosting Oracle Single sign on. During the installation of Oracle Single Sign On, the configuration assistant actually runs a connection test to confirm access from the database to Oracle Internet Directory.
