Hi all,

We're having a problem here that I have never seen before, weblogic 7.0 SP4 is used to host a MetaSolv application called ObjecTel.

First we configure an IPlanet Authentication Provider to get users from LDAP Directory, the configurations does work well but the problem is that after doing the configuration if we try to access the Users tree under: Security>>Realms>>myrealm>>users
the console simply get stucked and stops answering, even if we try to open a new browser window and access it, it doesn't work anymore, the only way we find out to get it working again is with a server reboot and that's not an option because it is a production server. The server is still running and we can connect to it using the weblogic.Admin tool and also the application keep running.
Any clues on this? I'm Really lost here.... :-(

Also I didn't find the bug reports for weblogic 7, anyone knows where is it?

Thanks in advance,
Marcos Maia.

Just got an answer from BEA office. It's a bug withing WL7.0 SP4(only) with IPlanet Authenticator Provider. I just received a new .jar with the following instructions:

- the .jar that follows should only be applied under the admin server(if running a clustered environment), doesn't need to apply it on the managed servers.
- Make a security copy from the .jar wlSecutiryProviders.jar, should be under %WL_HOME%/server/lib/mbeantypes.
- Stop all servers.
- Place the new wlSecurityProviders.jar under %WL_HOME%/server/lib/mbeantypes.
- Alter the servers initialization scripts placing the new .jar on the first ocurrence for the CLASSPATH on them.
- Restart servers and verify the admin console accessing the users tab, it should fix the problem. The solution have been already approved by the BEA Q.A team.
- VERY IMPORTANT ==>> This aplies ONLY for WLS 7.0 SP4.

I'll try it tonigth after all users are gone (it's an intranet app) and let you know if it worked.
Don't sweat petty things, or pet sweaty things. But cuddle this tiny ad:
