In this case the <USERNAME> reported in the above message is a user created in the external LDAP (OID).
This is a valid user and has Administration Rights in Content Server.
This is the user that was set in the WebCenter Portal Connection to WebCenter Content.

The issue can happen with any user from the external LDAP specified in the WebCenter Connection to WebCenter Content.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:


  1. Apply WebCenter Content BP6 or later.
    Note:1509747.1 - Links to One-Off/Interim and Fully Released Patches for Oracle WebCenter Content, 11g

  2. Start WC_Spaces managed server.
    Here you should see the errors in the WC_Spaces.out log file.
