Multi-Datasource Problem with ORA-12514 Error When Trying to Connect to Unavailable Database (Doc ID 2859536.1)

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 10.3.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


There is a problem with a multi-datasource implementation connected to a RAC database. One of the datasources under the multi-datasource needs to connect to a standby DB which is not available. So set the Connection Creation Retry Frequency parameter to 60. But with this parameter enabled, it writes messages to log files repeatedly:

If Connection Creation Retry Frequency is disabled, the multi-datasource will not initialize properly and the managed server will not come to RUNNING mode with the same message as above.

Is this behavior expected?
