Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Release Notes

Authentication service is not initialized when Access Manager and Directory Server are installed on separate machines (6229897)

Although the classpath and other Access Manager web container environment variables are updated during installation, the installation process does not restart the web container. If you try to login to Access Manager after installation before the web container is restarted, the following error is returned:

Authentication Service is not initialized. 
Contact your system administrator.

Workaround: Restart the web container before you login to Access Manager. Directory Server must also be running before you login.
