Symptoms

Upgraded oaam from 11.1.1.3 to 11.1.1.5. After completeing the upgrade, oaam services work properly, but i'm unable to access the /oaam_admin application.

The browser goes into a redirect loop when accessing. No errors are thrown in the logs. Access.log for the managed server looks like this (repeating).
