-  No errors are reported in the OMS application logs of the managed server logs, except for the timeout error after a very long time of the startup attempt.
-  OMS is installed on the local disk itself and not on an NFS mount.
-  At the OS ip6tables have been configured and is enabled. This can be verified by the below command, executed as the root user:

chkconfig --list | grep ip6tables
ip6tables 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
