Followed by message like:

The run-as security principal, 'Internal', chosen for the EJB 'AttestationMessageHandlerMDB(Application: Xellerate, EJBComponent: xlBackOfficeBeans.jar)' is not a valid user principal in the current security realm. Please specify a valid user principal for the EJB to use.


The above errors can occur is the required user and group is not created or deleted for some reason.  For instance if the user is not able to startup weblogic admin server due to authentication or some other errors and deletes the internal LDAP directory, can lead to the above message and hence Xellerate Application may not startup normally
