When using Weblogic Server 12c Release 2 (12.2.1), the Managed Server just hangs when starting from Admin console .

This is a 2 node cluster configuration (ManagedServerName1 and ManagedServerName2)

Node 1 starts from the console without issue. Node 2 does nothing.

If the managed server is started manually - it starts.

Node Manager is running .

The ManagedServerName11.out has an error leading to the cause:
