The cause of this exception is the Environment variables are not set properly.

Solution:

We have followed the following steps to resolve the issue (the steps are specified in the metalink note 1399244.1).

Following Environment variables should be set for Solaris in the .profile file:
  • Set ORACLE_COMMON_HOME   ORACLE_COMMON_HOME=$MWHOME/oracle_common;export ORACLE_COMMON_HOME
  • Set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to
           $ORACLE_HOME/lib32
  • Set LD_LIBRARY_PATH_64 to
          $ORACLE_HOME/lib
  • Ensure that PATH has reference to
         $ORACLE_COMMON_HOME/common/bin
        $ORACLE_COMMON_HOME/bin
  • set CLASSPATH to include this:
            $ORACLE_HOME/lib:$MW_HOME/jdk1.6.0_24/lib
  • Restart the services and access Enterprise Manager.

  1. One workaround that helped us resolve the exact same issue was removing the /cache and /tmp directories of the ADMIN server of SOA domain.

    As always, a backup of the directories prior removal is necessary.

    1. I forgot to mention that ADMIN server must be stopped before the removal of the directories. Once done, restart ADMIN server.
