When loading the portal page, receive the following errors:  

Error: Internal error (WWC-00006)
Unexpected error encountered in wwsec_app_priv.process_signon (User-Defined Exception) (WWC-41417)

When Portal midtier is restarted, everything functions fine for awhile then eventually (between 5 minutes and an hour) the errors show up again.

Environment has two infra servers and two mid-tier servers, both fronted by Big IP F5 Load Balancers.

The following errors appear throughout the webcache event_log:

[req-info] [ecid: 96870054366,0] [client:] [host: -][url: -]
