(Doc ID 1668853.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 10.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In this case, adapters (RAR files) are deployed in a nostage mode.

Sometimes, when the machine, that AdminServer is running on, is restarted, the applications, deployed on the managed server, would throw the below NullPointerException:
