You have configured an LDAP authentication server in OBIEE and set up Multiple Authentication Providers as described in section Configuring Oracle Business Intelligence to use Multiple Authentication Providers, of the Oracle Fusion Middleware Security Guide for Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) E10543-04. But when you set up an alternative authentication server, you can no longer log into Answers as the administrator user "weblogic", nor with any LDAP user.
The following error messages are encountered:
