Oracle Access Manager 11g R2PS3 (OAM Multi Data Center (MDC) - Session Attributes are not Retrieved Between Data Centers

In one DC (Clone in this case) we set attributes in a Session Attribute during Authentication process:
 - $session.attribute_name --> $user.attr.roles

Then, in the other DC (Primary in this case) we reference the Session Attribute in Authorization conditions:
 - $session.attr.attribute_name CONTAINS <value>

But, between DCs - seems that the session attribute is never populated.

That's why when OAM tries to check the authorization rule, the result is always false and users cannot access to the application


Issue can be verified in the logs:

On Clone:

              --------> but, the details of the Session (including required Session Attribute) cannot be retrieved - "Error while doing remote sync"
