Following file system problems, the Fusion MiddleWare FMW) directory was restored from backup.

After restoring the backup, AdminServer fails to start with error "JPS-01050: Opening of wallet based credential store failed. Reason java.io.IOException".

The AdminServer log shows the following:

The credential store wallet file at DOMAIN_HOME/config/fmwconfig/cwallet.sso is present and can be read using orapki utility.

It has appropriate permissions for the operating system user who starts the AdminServer.

Re-creating the wallet as per Unable To Start EPM 11.1.2 WebLogic Servers (Doc ID 1204133.1) does not resolve the issue.
