Symptoms

Changes made to config.xml are not being picked up by the managed server when it is started using WLST. The Admin Server is not running. The customer is starting the managed server directly from WLST, without the Admin Server requesting it. The customer had added different memory arguments to a managed server in the config.xml and started the managed server using the WLST command start('ms1', 'Server', block='false'). The Managed Server comes up, but the memory arguments configured on the config.xml are not being used.
