This log file may be found in a directory similar to the following (where the specific node name would be different) /home/oracle/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrv01/installedApps/vm-support-11Node01Cell/aveksa.ear/aveksa.war/log

CauseThis error suggests permission issues with the aveksa.ear file that were caused due to an improper restart or any other changes done by the user during server restart.
 
Resolution
  1. Redeploy the aveksa.ear file in Websphere. Instructions for redeploying the ear file on Websphere are in the RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle Upgrade and Migration Guide for your specific version. Look for the section entitled Upgrade the Aveksa EAR.
  2. Restart WebSphere.
