Hi All,

I am using weblogic server 12.1.3 and openjdk 11.

I want to start weblogic server using openjdk 11 and made configurations changes in weblogic to point to openjdk 11 and also updated environment variable. But, after starting server I am getting below message in console :

starting weblogic with Java version:
openjdk version "11" 2018-09-25
OpenJDK Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11+28)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM 18.9 (build 11+28, mixed mode)

Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

Could you please help me out in this.

I tried with below solution, but it didn't work :

1: Removed -Djava.endorsed.dirs option from web logic configuration files.
