JPS in OAM and OAAM 11gR2 Does Not Support Maximum Availability Architecture - MAA (Doc ID 2031182.1)

Last updated on JULY 22, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Access Manager - Version 11.1.2.2.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
ORA-01033
RAC
TAF

Goal

Oracle Access Manager (OAM) 11gR2 and Oracle Adaptive Access Manager (OAAM) 11gR2, both use the jps-config-jse.xml configuration when starting rather
than jps-config.xml.


Customer has configured Oracle Platform Security Services (OPSS) database using the Oracle Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA) using two Real Application
Clusters (RACs) and GridLink data sources in Weblogic.

When failing over to the disaster recovery (DR) data center, the following error is raised when restarting OAM and OAAM:

  Internal Exception: java.sql.SQLRecoverableException: ORA-01033: ORACLE initialization or shutdown in progress

This occurs even though the OPSS data source in Weblogic connects successfully.
It looks like the Java Policy Store (JPS) connects using the Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) URL defined in the jps-config-jse.xml file rather
than the Weblogic GridLink data source.  This makes it impossible to support MAA.

What configuration changes need to be made to support MAA for JPS in OAM and OAAM 11gR2?
