I am having an issue starting my Weblogic Node Manager, I am running Weblogic 10.3.5


I get error:


10-Jun-2013 17:06:05 weblogic.nodemanager.server.NMServer main

SEVERE: Fatal error in node manager server

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: SSL_RSA_EXPORT_WITH_RC4_40_MD5 Unsupported.

        at com.certicom.tls.interfaceimpl.TLSSystem.setEnabledCipherSuites(Unknown Source)

        at Source)

        at weblogic.nodemanager.server.SSLListener.init(

        at weblogic.nodemanager.server.NMServer.start(

        at weblogic.nodemanager.server.NMServer.main(

        at weblogic.NodeManager.main(


When trying to start the Node Manager, I now cant work out what is wrong. Ive looked for the solution, Oracle Support suggests adding to my JAVA_OPTIONS in I have done this but still the issue continues, have others came across this?


Another suggestion I found was to add CipherSuite=SSL_RSA_EXPORT_WITH_RC4_40_MD5 to Again I attempeted this but still the issue existing when trying to start the NodeManager.


I am really at a loss now on where to go, any help is would be great.


I have and admin server and 2 managed servers using jrockit we are running OBIEE application
