OBIEE 11G server unable to start

Today i did faced a wierd issue where my Bi services are not starting 

 <Notice> <WebLogicServer> <BEA-000365> <Server state changed to FAILED>
 <Error> <WebLogicServer> <BEA-000383> <A criticalservice failed. The server will shut itself down>
 <Notice> <WebLogicServer> <BEA-000365> <Server state changed to FORCE_SHUTTING_DOWN>

looking furthur into the logs i did find one warning:

WARNING: Key store file integrity checker initialization failed. Reason oracle.s
ecurity.jps.service.keystore.KeyStoreServiceException: JPS-01050: Opening of wal
let based credential store failed. Reason C:\Oracle\Middlew
.sso (Access is denied).

Once i grant the acess to the key store file cwallet.sso , now i am able to start the bi services.
You can find the file in the location specified:


Root Cause Analysis:

I was trying to start the BI Services with the newly created user. This user must have access/ rights to all middle ware home.
