  • Troubleshooting : oam_admin status is failed in WebLogic deployment for OAM Server

    Posted by "" in "OAM, WebLogic" on 2014-06-27

    Recently I came across the error where OAMConsole (Admin Console for Oracle Access Manager) was not working. This post covers steps to troubleshoot issues with OAM Console.


    OAM console is J2EE application, deployed on WebLogic’s Admin Server. You access OAM console using http://webLogicHost:AdminPort/oamconsole . For me OAM console was resulting in 404 Not Found.

    If you hit error like above then check status of oam_admin application under deployments in WebLogic Admin Server Console (/console)


    Status of  oam_admin( status was FAILED

    I then checked log file at $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/AdminServer/[base_domain].log and error mentioned in log file was

    I reviewed few My Oracle Support (MOS) notes .

    • OAM Fails to Start After Applying Patch (Doc ID 1439201.1)
    • OAM 11g : OAM Server Key Initialization Failed (Doc ID 1354918.1)
    • OAM 11gR2 : OAM Server Deployment Shows Status “Failed” and Error “Datasource jdbc/oamds not found” is Displayed (Doc ID 1586388.1)


    At the end I found that there is some problem in configure security store to Database (wrong parameters used).



    $ORACLE_HOME/common/tools/configureSecurityStore.py -d $DOMAIN_HOME

    –t DB_ORACLE –j cn=jpsroot –m create –<OPSS_SCHEMA_PASSWORD>     (ERROR)


    Correct parameter is :


    $ORACLE_HOME/common/tools/configureSecurityStore.py -d $DOMAIN_HOME

    –c IAM –p <OPSS _SCHEMA_PASSWORD> –m create          (Right)

    So by correctly configuration of security store to database problem was solved .

      In our env.
      oam-admin is not available in deployments of adminserver and hence we are unable to access oamconsole

      1. Atul Kumar says:

        @ Devang, You can manually deploy OAM Console ear file from WebLogic Console. Search for OAMConsole EAR file and then using weblogic console manually deploy it to Admin Server .

    2. Snehal Patel says:

      I ran into similar issue. Problem was fixed with finding missing jar file in classpath.

    3. Ove says:

      Now i am also facing the same error.When i try to configure the security store it shows the,
      Unique constraint violated error,So i try to fix that error using the validate_fix option then it is success.After i start the admin server the oamconsole application status is failed.I am also refer the above mentioned document but i am not able to find the exact error .I am stuck in that place for more than one month.Please guide me.
