Symptoms

NMS uses SSL and code-signing certificates to maintain a secure system.  When these expire, the NMS system can become unusable. 

One good thing is that Weblogic does provide notices and warnings in the managed server logs before this can happen.

<Jan 1, 2018 12:25:36 AM EST> <Notice> <WebLogicServer> <BEA-000298> <Certificate expires in 30 days: [[

<Jan 23, 2018 12:25:36 AM EST> <Notice> <WebLogicServer> <BEA-000298> <Certificate expires in 7 days: [[

 

and finally the message you do not want to see

<Feb 20, 2018 3:20:38 AM EST> <Alert> <Security> <BEA-090154> <Identity certificate has expired: [[
