"JAXB error occurred during unmarshalling" when starting up Oracle Access Manager 11g

Problem:

While starting up the Oracle Access Manager 11gr2ps3 (OAM 11.1.2.3) Admin and managed servers, you may receive a JAXB unmarshalling error related to a SAXParseException due to some bad XML:
[2016-10-04T15:57:22.849-05:00] [AdminServer] [ERROR] [] [oracle.idaas.common] [tid: JMX FRAMEWORK Domain Runtime MBeanServer pooling thread] [userId: ] [ecid: 0000LUHV9AQ3FCE5V79Dic1Nx1Ud000003,0] A JAXB error occurred during unmarshalling.[[oracle.as.config.persistence.exceptions.ConfigException: A JAXB error occurred during unmarshalling.at oracle.as.config.persistence.jaxb.JAXBXmlPersistenceManagerImpl.load(JAXBXmlPersistenceManagerImpl.java:229)at oracle.security.idaas.common.config.mbeans.persistence.JAXBXmlDBPersistenceManagerImpl.load(JAXBXmlDBPersistenceManagerImpl.java:508)at oracle.as.jmx.framework.util.DefaultConfigObjectMBeanAssociationInfo.loadConfigObject(DefaultConfigObjectMBeanAssociationInfo.java:722)at oracle.as.jmx.framework.util.DefaultConfigObjectMBeanAssociationInfo.initializeConfigObjectAndAssociatedMBean(DefaultConfigObjectMBeanAssociationInfo.java:731)at oracle.as.jmx.framework.wls.spi.ComponentMBeans.parseAndRegister(ComponentMBeans.java:201)
Caused by: javax.xml.bind.UnmarshalException - with linked exception:[org.xml.sax.SAXParseException; lineNumber: 81; columnNumber: 41; The element type "lifecycleEnabled" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "".]

In Oracle Support Doc ID 2192012.1, Oracle confirms that there are 5 files that may have bad XML in them, and suggests making corrections to them. These files are:
  • oauth.xml
  • oauth_mbeans.xml
  • system-jazn-data.xml
  • oauth-xxxxxxxxxxxx.xml
  • idass.xml

In our case, these files were both well-formatted and valid. So that was not the issue.


Solution:

This happened in a cloned environment. In this case, the database was bad.

1. Restore the database to a valid, working version.
