Unable to start the admin server using wlst offline command startServer() on SSL port for a SSL configured domain with custom trust keystore.  

The server process is started and the log file shows the server as running but WLST won't exit. If we force WLST to exit using "Ctrl+c" combination the Admin Server is shutdown. ==


Snippet showing a "Ctrl + c", shuts down the running Admin Server and exit the WLST prompt.

shutdown_hook as seen above.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Configure Custom Keystores for the WebLogic Domain.

2. Create a custom python script to start the Admin Server from WLST connecting to the SSL port.

3. Invoke the python script using WLST without custom trust keystore information.


 Configure custom keystores on the WLS 12c (12.2.1.x)
