1. Logging into 12C Cloud Control gives the following error message :

Authentication failed. If problem persists, contact your system administrator
As shown there :

- ..<Middleware_Home>/gc_inst/em/EMGC_OMS1/sysman/log/emoms_pbs.log file shows:

2. After some time OMS comes down and accessing the 12C Cloud Control gives the error message:
