Applies to:

Oracle SOA Platform - Version 11.1.1.4.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

You have an installation of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g on a Linux platform and are starting the WebLogic Managed Server for the SOA component from the NodeManager.
The SOA managed server starts successfully and the soa-infra application initializes, so you are able to access SOA composites from Enterprise manager Fusion Middleware Control.

However, you cannot successfully deploy a new SOA composite or (in the case of a migration) execute any default or previously deployed composite and encounter errors similar to the following in the server log file for the WebLogic Managed Server where the SOA component is running:.
