After applying log4j patch 2.17.0, then the AdminUI doesn't start anymore and it reports errors:

  14:21:05,825 WARN  [] (MSC service thread 1-4) WFLYSRV0018: Deployment "deployment.iam_siteminder.ear.user_console.war" is using a private module ("") which may be changed or removed in future versions without notice.

There are missing libraries in the library folder:

ls -l command output:

  drwxrwxr-x  2 smuser smuser 4.0K Jul 21 09:22 .
  drwxrwxr-x 14 smuser smuser 4.0K Jul 21 10:42 ..

The following operation hasn't been done:

    Copy only log4j-api-2.15.0.jar and log4j-core-2.15.0.jar in <adminui_installation_path>\standalone\deployments\iam_siteminder.ear\library (1).



  1. Stop the AdminUI;
  2. Copy log4j-api-2.17.0.jar and log4j-core-2.17.0.jar to the /opt/CA/siteminder/adminui/standalone/deployments/iam_siteminder.ear/library folder;
  3. Start the AdminUI to solve this issue;
