Oracle Access Manager (OAM) Referance For The System Identity Store

The System Identity Store is used to authenticate Administrators signing in to use the Oracle Access Manager Console, remote registration, and custom administrative commands in WLST. Administrators using the Oracle Access Manager Console
must be in the System Store.

System Store: Contains Groups and or users for Access System Administrator roles for the entire Identity Management Domain, to which the LDAP Authentication Module used by the OAMAdminConsoleScheme points.

Note: Administrator login works only when the LDAP Authentication Module used by the OAMAdminConsoleScheme also uses the System Store. Changing the System Store impacts the entire identity management domain. If you set another store as a remote store, ensure that the OAMAdminConsoleScheme is also modified to avoid a lockout.

The following steps assume that the Identity store has already been registered and tested, and that you are now going to make this store the System Identity Store and that the current System Identity Store is the OOB embedded LDAP.
