Checking the driver configuration with the configuration from a working IDM 4 SAP HR driver revealed that there was a missing configuration parameter. The new driver requires 'pub-heartbeat-interval' to be able to run.
Adding this to the driver configuration allowed the driver to run.
1) export existing driver
2) open export file with a text editor (not Notepad)
3) find nsap-poll-interval and past in the following after '</definition>'
<definition display-name="Publisher heartbeat interval" name="pub-heartbeat-interval" type="integer"><description>Configures the driver shim to send a periodic status message on the Publisher channel when there has been no Publisher traffic for the given number of minutes.</description><value>1</value></definition>
4) reimport the driver, select the existing driver to be updated
5) start / test driver.
