OIM Application is in failed state

<Servlet: "SchedulerInitServlet" failed to preload on startup in Web application: "SchedulerService-web".
org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'configurationInstance' defined in class path resource [META-INF/iam-spring-config.xml]: Instantiation of bean failed; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.BeanInstantiationException: Could not instantiate bean class [oracle.iam.platform.utils.config.ConfigurationImpl]: Constructor threw exception; nested exception is oracle.mds.exception.MDSRuntimeException: MDS-00068: Unable to find a type definition for: namespace = http://www.oracle.com/schema/oracle/iam/platform/config, local name = oaacgConfig, file location = /db/oim-config.xml

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. MDS data had various files imported into it including zip files, backup folders etc and changes to /db/oim-config.xml
2. Both nodes were restarted and OIM and scheduler both fail
