Changing the oc4jadmin password of administration OC4J in Oracle Application Server, makes other OC4J containers configuration inaccessible from ASControl.

When click on any OC4J container(other than the administration OC4J) it throws following errors:

Unable to make a connection to OC4J instance <OC4J container name> on Application Server <instance name>. A common cause for this failure is an authentication error. The administrator password for each OC4J instance in the Cluster must be the same as the administrator password for the OC4J instance on which Application Server Control is running.

Steps to Reproduce
1. Login to the ASControl as oc4jadmin.
2. Click on the setup link on the top of the page.
3. Click on the password link
4. Enter old password and new password on the text boxes provided.
5. Click apply to save changes.
6. Now go back to the Cluster Topology Page
7. Click on the any of OC4J instance link to open it. This will produce the error.
