The installActions .out file shows a more explicit OPMN syntax error

opmnctl startall: starting opmn and all managed processes...
In line 6 of /home/oracle/middleware/webtier/instances/instance1/config/OPMN/opmn/opmn.xml:
LSX-00291: value "-1" is less than minimum "1" (inclusive)
LSX-00291: value "0" is less than minimum "1" (inclusive)
LSX-00213: only 0 occurrences of particle "sequence", minimum is 1
XML schema validation failed: error 213.
oracle.as.config.ProvisionException: Unable to start opmn

A closer inspection of the ORACLE_INSTANCE/config/OPMN/opmn/opmn.xml file reveals the syntax error to be port values set in the notification server section of the file e.g

<notification-server interface="any">
<port local="-1" remote="0"/>
<ssl enabled="true" wallet-file="/home/oracle/middleware/webtier/instances/instance1/config/OPMN/opmn/wallet"/>
</notification-server>
