Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 12.2.1.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In an Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c 12.2.1 environment using OPSS, unable to start the Weblogic AdminServer, showing these two exceptions:

1. java.lang.IllegalStateException: Unable to perform operation: post construct on oracle.security.jps.wls.JpsBootStrapService
2. oracle.security.jps.config.JpsConfigurationException: JPS-01531: Configuration location ./config/jps-config.xml is a directory. File name expected

 

Initial troubleshooting pointed to a potential issue with tmp directories, so these things were attempted:

- Tried removing the cache and tmp directories, but that did not help.
- Checked that the OS user has full access to the server /tmp location.

Changes

Tried setting -Djava.io.tmpdir options in the setDomainEnv.sh file.
