Oracle E-Business Suite Technology Stack - Version 12.1.3 to 12.2.5 [Release 12.1 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Customer is following <Document 1484024.1> to setup OAM/Webgate/Accessgate to integrate with EBS 12.1.x. In Step 4.4 Configure Response Headers -- when we try to access OAM Console, Launch Pad, navigate to Access Manager > Application Domains > Search for {Identifier for your WebGate}

There are no domains listed there.

We tried to enable diagnostic trace for OAM following <Document 1495179.1> but got no new details in the logs. When we  shut down the 3 managed server WLS_AMA1 WLS_MSM1 WLS_OAM1
and the WLS admin server, and tried to restart the Admin server. Admin Server now fails with the error:

WLS Admin server log shows:
