Oracle Access Manager - Version 11.1.1.5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms


After taking a backup of the Oracle Access Manager 11.1.1.5 environment then starting the WebLogic AdminServer and OAM Managed Server processes, access to the OAM Console as OAM administrator user shows no objects in the Policy Configuration navigator frame, the frame is blank.

The WebLogic domain log shows the following error:

Before the backup OAM was working perfectly without any errors and the OAM Console Policy Configuration tab showed the expected objects.

The only actions taken before the OAM domain was brought down for backup were registration of a new webgate. The new WebGate functionality was working before backup.

The database connectivity for OAM AdminServer machine to the database has been verified.

Steps to reproduce

1. Start the OAM AdminServer.
2. Access http(s)://AdminServerHostname.domain:AdminServerport/oamconsole and login as OAM Administrator.
3. The OAM Console Policy Configuration tab navigator frame shows as blank.
4. The WebLogic Domain log shows in DOMAIN_HOME/servers/AdminServer/logs directory shows "oracle.security.am.common.policy.admin.store.PolicyStoreException: OAMSSA-06198: Authentication scheme LDAPScheme not found."
