You are using Active Directory (AD) to authenticate your users.  You have imported the users and groups into WebLogic Server.  But with some OBIEE users, you get the following error when trying to log into OBIEE:
Caused by: [Security:090304]Authentication Failed: User akandru [Security:090302]Authentication Failed: User akandru denied

:authenticateUserWithLanguage - 'Apparao Kandru' was authenticated but could not located within the Identity Store.

However, with other users you can log into OBIEE without problem.
