2780965792 DVRS: [2012/08/30 11:55:00.104] DirXML starting.
2780965792 DVRS: [2012/08/30 11:55:02.129] DirXML Init: unable to find an active driver set. Err: failed, no such value (-602)

Resolution

Things to check :
 1. IDM is installed properly on the server
 2. Ensure server is added to the driverset's server list
 3. A r/w replica of the driverset is available on the server
 4. At least one of the drivers is enabled to autostart
 5. Latest IDM engine patches are applied
 
If all the above are verified and still IDM does not load then

  a. Make a backup of the current drivers in desginer
  b. Remove the server from the driverset's server list. Restart eDirectory
  c. Add the server back to the driverset's server list. Restart eDirectory.
