SLOUTION:

You have to make sure this class is in the classpath: com.bea.wcp.sip.management.descriptor.beans.SipServerBean.

You have to edit the nodemanager.properties file and set the variable StartScriptEnabled=true instead of the default false.

The nodemanager.properties file is usually located in the directory: /wlserver_10.3/common/nodemanager.

Now the nodemanager uses the start script usually startWebLogic, which calls the setDomainEnv in which the classpath for the SIP server is set. When you use the startManagedServer command the setDomainEnv is called so the classpath is set.
