 Intermittently, user cannot run SOAP services:

Failed to log into BI Publisher: invalid username or password.

At the same time as having the issue with running the SOAP server, when the same user tries to access the BI Catalog through the Fusion UI, the User is getting:

Error 500: Internal Server Error.

The problem is intermittent: The problem occurs for a short time and suddenly it works again.

Here are some of the errors found in the logs:
