In OAM configured OAM domain security policy store associated to an Oracle Database utilizing a Multi-Datasource RAC setup. The Multi-Datasource has four different database connections.

If for any reason this particular Database instance (the one defined in the jps-config.xml) is down, the IAM/OAM servers cannot be started and won't work until we bring up the specified DATABASE Instance:

<propertySet name="props.db1">
<property name ="jdbc.url" value="jdbc:oracle:thin:@(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS_LIST=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=<HOSTNAME>)(PORT=<PORT>)))(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVICENAME=<SERVICENAME>)(INSTANCE_NAME=<INSTANCENAME>)))"/>   =======> This line in particular.
<property name="" value="cn=IAM"/>
<property name="server.type" value="DB_ORACLE"/>
<property name="" value="cn=jpsroot"/>
<property name="jdbc.driver" value="oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver"/>
<property name="" value="BOOTSTRAP_JPS"/>
<property name="" value="bootstrap_<ENCRYPTED_TEXT>"/>
<property name="" value="jdbc/OPSSDBDS"/>
<property name="" value="true"/>

So, if OPSS repository is a RAC database, then that line can be set to the correct URL setting all corresponding scan servers.
