Restart SSL

In this release of WebLogic Server, all server SSL attributes are dynamic. When modified via the Console, they cause the corresponding SSL server or channel SSL server to restart and use the new settings for new connections. Old connections will continue to run with the old configuration. To ensure that all the SSL connections exist according to the specified configuration, you must reboot WebLogic Server.

Use the Restart SSL button to restart the SSL server when changes are made to the keystore files and need to be applied for subsequent connections without rebooting WebLogic Server.

To restart the SSL server:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane of the Console, expand Environment and select Servers .
  3. Click the name of the server for which you want to restart SSL.
  4. Select Control > Start/Stop.
  5. In the Server Status table, select the check box next to the name of the server for which to restart SSL channels.
  6. Select Restart SSL.

    Restarts the SSL listen sockets so that keystore changes take effect.

  7. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).
