Symptoms

After configuring Detached Credential Collector (DCC) tunneling on OAM 11.1.2.3.0 and enabling unsolicited authentication, attempts to perform unsolicited authentication (where user credentials are included in the HTTP request URL) through the DCC tunnel result in the user being prompted for authentication.  The expected result is that the user would be authenticated without a prompt for credentials.  Upon review of an HTTP header trace of the attempted authentication we see that two OAMAuthnCookies are set in the response after the initial request, rather than an OAM_ID cookie, EG:

 
GET http://oam.oracle.com:7777/oam/server/authentication?username=user&password=userpassword&successurl=http://oam.oracle.com:18080/unsolicited/index.htm

HTTP/?.? 302 Found
