Can see the following error in the emoms.log file as well:

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Log into http://yourserver.com:port/em.
2. Access the Application Deployments, or WebLogic Domain area of the Farm without issue.
3. Next click on Business Intelligence >> Coreapplication and this just hangs. It spins and nothing happens. Cannot monitor OBIEE through EM, and cannot deploy an RPD.
