Chapter 12 Managing Keys and Certificates
Section 12.8.1 Using the syncKeyStores Command

In case of WebLogic Server (WLS), the keystores always have to be exported to a filestore using syncKeyStores.

When doing so, it only works if the stripe is 'system'.

Choosing to use some other stripe, e.g. '<APPSTRIPE_NAME>', returns errors:

1. Is there something special with stripe 'system'? / Is the reason for the strange behavior reported with this SR the stripe "system" itself?
2. Is there a dependency between 'syncKeyStores' and 'system'?
3. Is it not allowed to use a 'own' stripe for WLS? / When it recommended to use your own stripe, e.g. named 'mystripe'?
