When starting the WebLogic PIA via the psadmin tool, the PIA does not start successfully, and the psadmin command never completes. Instead it gets stuck at "Starting the domain.......".

Example of psadmin output:


The problem can be recreated as follows:
   1. From psadmin, navigate to "Web (PIA) Server" -> "Administer a domain"
   2. Then choose the PIA you wish to start
   3. Choose option "Boot this domain"
   4. The PIA starts but psadmin hangs on this message:
       Starting the domain.......
