If AM is run using FBC and without a DS config store that it can connect to, AM does not properly start up and errors like this are seen in the logs:
- make sure boot.json does not point at a running DS
- configure FBC to use AM (from the AM dockerfile /home/forgerock/openam-fbc for example)
- Start AM
When trying to install plugins, AM tries to search both FBC and LDAP for children of ou=services to find if the amPluginService exists. On trying to connect to LDAP, an exception is thrown that is rethrown as a RuntimeException from the PluginLifecycle class.
