When you log in to the WLS Administration console (http://<hostname>:7001/console) and check the status of AdminServer, the status is shown as Critical instead of OK. Then when you check the detail health information of the server, you can see that the status of JDBC is Critical with reason:

"Connection Pool Name = null:null:mds-owsm, State = Unhealthy."
