Symptoms

A customer reports being unable to access the WebLogic admin console after configuring Custom Identity and Custom Trust using SHA 256 certificates.

The certificate chain in the Identity keystore looks fine (validated using the utils.ValidateCertChain utility). From the logs we can see that the Weblogic DefaultSecure channel is listening on the SSL port specified:

The same keystore was used as both an Idenity and a Trust keystore.

The customer reported that when a SHA1 certificate keystore is used both as Identity and Trust keystore (with JSSE disabled), they do not see any issues.
