Server subsystem failed. Reason: java.lang.NumberFormatException: null

Our admin server of the osb development environment failed to restart because of a full disk.
After cleaning up the admin server still wouldn’t start resulting in the next stack.

Locate the file :

ORACLE_HOME/user_projects/domain/your_domaim_name/servers/AdminServer/data/ldap/conf/replicas.prop

.. and remove it

In our case the file got corrupted (0byte file).
Removing the file, the file will get recreated with something like the next content :

[weblogic@my_machine conf]$ cat replicas.prop
