The AdminServer will start fine if supplying clear-text password parameters on the command-line (i.e.- Dweblogic.management.username=myusername -Dweblogic.management.password=mypassword) or environment variables.

It is observed that the boot.properties file is not getting read and encrypted as the parameter values are still in clear text.
