purposes the following error is shown in the browser:

"A connection could not established to some members of the group <groupname>.

Additionally, after enabling TRACE:32 level in oracle.security.jazn loggers and oracle.j2ee.security as follows:

a) Edit $ORACLE_HOME/j2ee/home/config/j2ee-logging.xml file
b) Add the new <logger section within the <loggers> tags, as follows:


<loggers>
...
  <logger name='oracle.security.jazn' level='TRACE:32' useParentHandlers='false'>
   <handler name='oc4j-handler'/>
  </logger>
  <logger name='oracle.j2ee.security' level='TRACE:32' useParentHandlers='false'>
   <handler name='oc4j-handler'/>
  </logger>

...
</loggers>


Lter on the $ORACLE_HOME/j2ee/<oc4j instance>/log/<group name>/oc4j/log.xml file for the managed OC4J instance contains messages as follows:
