Upgrading Oracle Access Manager 11g R1 (11.1.1.5.0) to Oracle Access Management Access Manager 11g R2 (11.1.2) on AIX Platform Fails

Upgrading Oracle Access Manager 11.1.1.5.0 to Access Manager 11.1.2 on AIX platform fails. The upgrade appears complete and the first Access Manager Server starts up without any problem. However, subsequent servers fails to start up and shows the following message:


(thread=Cluster, member=n/a): This Member(Id=0, Address=XX.XX.XX.XX:9097, MachineId=6803, Location=site:,machine:XXXXXX,process:3080574, Role=WeblogicServer) has been attempting to join the cluster using WKA list [XXXXXX/XX.XX.XX.XX:9095] for 30 seconds without success; this could indicate a mis-configured WKA, or it may simply be the result of a busy cluster or active failover.>
