Unable to get Nexus3:latest to run in Open Shift 4.11

I’ve been trying for two days to get anything other than sonatype/nexus3:3.38.1 to run on Openshift v4.11.

It’s pretty simple. All I do is:

oc new-project nexus3
oc new-app sonatype/nexus3:latest
oc expose svc/nexus3

The nexus pod starts up but it errors with:

2023-03-30 18:10:20,660+0000 INFO [FelixStartLevel] *SYSTEM org.sonatype.nexus.internal.node.orient.OrientLocalNodeAccess - Generating certificate
2023-03-30 18:10:20,805+0000 ERROR [FelixStartLevel] *SYSTEM org.sonatype.nexus.internal.node.orient.OrientLocalNodeAccess - Failed transition: NEW → STARTED
org.sonatype.nexus.ssl.KeystoreException: Unable to retrieve key manager in keystore ‘private.ks’ for alias ‘identity’
at org.sonatype.nexus.ssl.internal.geronimo.FileKeystoreInstance.getKeyManager(FileKeystoreInstance.java:262)

And then the pod restarts twice. Eventually, the pod settles down but when I browse to the URL for nexus, it gets stuck at “Nexus Repository Manager Initializing…” and never gets any farther.

It’s highly unlikely that the entire Openshift world is experiencing this problem. Any hints would be welcome!
