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:
If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit
Click the name of the server for which you want to restart SSL.
Select Control > Start/Stop.
Restarts the SSL listen sockets so that keystore changes take effect.
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
