Already tried all of the following, to no help:

<Document 1511505.1> - Loss Of Connectivity With OVD 11g / OVD Process Gets Killed Or Goes Into A "Stop" Status / Log Error: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: Received fatal alert: bad_certificate

<Document 1500592.1> - OVD 11g Or Higher Diagnostic Log Errors: Received fatal alert: bad_certificate / [com.octetstring.vde.NIOConnection] ... readOpTag: No data from the conn / Read optag failed: excption: No data from the client

Configured the WLS/WLS Managed Server jdk versions to match OVD's (reference Solution from unrelated <Document 1513855.1> for steps on how to verify what jdk version is being used by each product).

Restarted the entire stack in the exact order shown in the documentation.
