With Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) installed within the Oracle Containers For Java (OC4J) Application Server version, on a VMWare image, when attempting to create or modify a user the following error occurs in the logs:


java.sql.SQLException: ORA-02049: timeout: distributed transaction waiting for lock

In the Web Admin Console, the "???en_US.DOBJ.UPDATE_FAILED???" errors may appear, for web UI initiated actions.


Running OIM within a VMWare environment is not a certified platform and is likely to run into performance issues such as this and potentially others as well. OIM is certified to run within an Oracle VM environment however.
