RH PAM v.7.12 on EAP 7.4 failed to proper install now issue w/login authentication

Posted on
  • Installed a fresh JBos EAP 7.4 w/https, keystore+vault
  • attempted to run: java -jar rhpam-installer-7.12.0.jar -console only this always failed at the end even though not other issues were logged
  • then attempted to install/deploy PAM from zip archive only
  • managemented to deploy business-central.war somehow
  • created several users w/add-user.sh
  • none will validate on the login page
  • raised log level to debug

Any hints appreciated for what's missing to allow logging into business-central, TIA!
