Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Note: WebCenter Spaces has been renamed to WebCenter Portal. In versions prior to 11.1.1.7, the term 'spaces' was used. In 11.1.1.7 and beyond, 'spaces' will now be referred to as 'portals'.


After associating WebCenter Portal with Oracle Internet Directory (OID), the WLS Admin server fails to start with the following error:

User weblogic is not permitted to boot the server
