OIM Server in Admin Mode
Starting the OIM server goes to Running mode, it only starts in Admin mode. The logs contain an error indicating there was a problem creating a connection pool.
<Dec 31, 2012 11:00:14 AM MDT> <Warning> <JDBC> <BEA-001129>
<Received exception while creating connection for pool “xxxxxxxxx”:
ORA-01034: ORACLE not availableORA-27101: shared memory realm does not exist
The xxxxxxxxx in the error matches the name of one of the data sources exactly. Upon closer inspection the Data Source did not belong. It applied to the OIM cluster and that is why OIM started in admin mode. Removing the offending Data Source from Weblogic and restarting the OIM managed service rectified the problem.
The origin of the Data Source is unknown; it was likely created erroneously.
