    Is it a Windows Environment? If so please check the background service of weblogic is running or not?

    If not may I know the Environment details and its version?

    When I review the error log you have posted, it looks to me that the incorrect WebLogic server name was typed in. It is stating that only two servers exist in the WebLogic domain: AdminServer and soa_server1.

    If I am looking at this correctly, it appears that you were trying to start up a WebLogic server called "sa_server1". I think the 'o' in soa_server1 might be missing when you were trying to start the WebLogic server. If that is the case, this error happens when anyone tries to start a non-existing WebLogic server.

    What happens when you try to start "soa_server1"? I would make sure that there aren't any missing letters.
