In an Oracle Access Manager (OAM) 10.1.4 environment where a non-IIS application WebGate is redirecting to a Microsoft IIS WebGate for Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) users intermittently see the following error:

Oracle Access Manager Operation Error
The form authentication scheme Form login for Non-IIS IWA does not have a challenge parameter form:formURL, where formURL is the URL of the login form.

'Non-IIS IWA' in the above error text is the name of the Form authentication scheme configured in the Policy Domain protecting the resources deployed on the non-IIS application webgates, so this name will differ according to the environment.

The URL displayed in the address bar is something like

https://<HOSTNAME>.<DOMAIN>:<PORT>/access/oblix/apps/webgate/bin/webgate.dll?status=500 errmsg=ErrNoFormUrl p1=Kerberos%20-%20Form%20authentication

The authentication schemes have been configured following the instructions in <Note:361312.1> - How To Setup Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) as an Authentication WebGate.

IWA login to resources deployed on the IIS WebGate succeeds every time without any errors.&nbsp;

The issue is specific to protected resource access via non-IIS WebGates.

Steps to reproduce

1. Login to the Windows domain on a client PC and start a new browser session.
2. Access a protected resource deployed on the non-IIS WebGate.
3. In most cases this first time the IWA authentication will succed and the resource will be displayed.
4. Close the browser.
5. Open a new browser session.
6. Access a protected resource deployed on the non-IIS WebGate again.
7. 'Oracle Access Manager Operation Error' should occur. If not then repeat steps 4 - 6 again until it occurs.
