This is a strange one. I installed OBIEE 11g using the Enterprise Software method. I configure Active Directory as a authentication provider, following the instructions in the OBIEE security document. I unlocked and locked the Weblogic console. I encountered no errors. When I restart the OBIEE services, the AD entry has disappeared.
I configured AD a second time. I saved everything. I closed the browser and opened a new browser session. The AD provider is there. I bounced Weblogic, open the console, and the AD entry is gone.
Has anyone seen this behavior and how to correct it?
Could you check the config.xml in under Middleware/user_projects/domains/bifoundation_domain/config folder and see if this Active directory security provider is being created under any realm .?
Let us know.
