In Oracle Financial Services Asset Liability Management (ALM), a Static Stochastic process fails when the Interest Rate Code used as the Valuation Curve in the Stochastic Rate Indexing definition has a Long Run Rate = 0 in the "Parameters" screen in Rate Management.  The stochastic process uses the "Vasicek" term structure model.  You expect the process to run successfully with a Long Run Rate = 0 because the ALM User Guide states that 0 is a valid value.

In Chapter 10 "OFSAA Rate Management", the guide states that the valid range of values for Long Run Rate are 0 to 999.9999% and the default value is 0.  See below:

However, the ALM Process fails when Long Run Rate = 0 and the following message is output to FSI_PROCESS_ERRORS:

Error Description:
Long run rate 0 is out of range: IRC 1, method Vasicek, date 7/13/12
