1)This can happen when we have install the ASA for the first time and using improper

/ wrong Java.home path different from WebLogic JVM.


2)If the Java is upgraded from the working setup.




Ensure the AssertionAuthResource is configured in the Agent configurationObject and Realm is created matching the AssertionAuthResource value defined.

Ensure that java_home path in the (Smreghost file) which is installed with ASA agent matches the WebLogic java path and unlimited JCE patch for the Java version being used for the WebLogic instance as recommended in the ASA agent documentation.

Ensure that all the Java in the WebLogic JVM are also patched with the JCE, this should resolve the problem.
