Symptoms

The felix patch for activation with jdk 1.7 (18475523) has been installed, along with the required OAM bundle patch to OAM 11.1.2.2.5.  This method was used to successfully install the plugins on several machines.

On several other machines, the custom plugins do not activate correctly, even through they do install and distribute correctly.

 oam-config.xml shows failed activation.
