Oracle Virtual Directory - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) 11g.

QA and Dev envs
QA still running
No firewalls/load balancers in between hosts.

In the process of upgrading both to, started with Dev upgrade to first as required, by using the following steps:
a) Ugraded the Weblogic to 10.3.2 using patch 9082192.
b) Installed Oracle Fusion Middleware under a new ORACLE_HOME
c) Used the Patch assistant and setup the file
d) Ran the 'ant master-patch-schema'
e) Created a new domain using giving it a new name using the Admin Server, Managed Servers, Clusters and machines
f) Configured the admin server, managed servers, clusters, machines, etc
g) ran ant master-patch-domain
h) ran master-patch-oinstance
i) ran master-register-oinstance
j) ant master-start-domain-new

Everything works except for Oracle Directory Services Manager (ODSM) to OVD via SSL admin port 8899 which returns the following error to the screen:

Server has failed SSL verification. This may be due to a host address or port problem or trust could not be verified or was declined.

The $FMW_HOME/user_projects/domains/<DOMAIN _NAME>/servers/<NAME_OF_MANAGED_SERVER, i.e. wls_ods1>/logs\wls_ods1-diagnostic.log shows:

However, the file odsm.cer could not be found anywhere in the FMW home. In QA, still running, this file in one directory that includes a long directory name with numbers.  In this Dev env, there two similar directories with long numbers, but no odsm.cer file in either one.

Tried copying the odsm.cer from QA to both of those directories in Dev, and then restarted the managed server, however the same error and log error continue.
