We are using Oracle Weblogic 11g with two clusters

I have configured SSL Certificate we got from CA for the Admin Server.

After that I am getting the following error while starting the Node Manager.

.SSLKeyException: [Security:090482]BAD_CERTIFICATE alert was received from hovm234.scif.com - Check the peer to determine why it rejected the certificate chain (trusted CA configuration, hostname verification). SSL debug tracing may be required to determine the exact reason the certificate was rejected.

What could be the reason for this.

There are a few reasons.  you will definitely want to turn on SSL debugging and watch the WebLogic log files.  From there, you should get some ideas about what could be wrong.  If your site uses a "wildcard" ssl certificate, WebLogic 10.x doesn't handle that.  Also, you may see small exponent exceptions depending on who issued your cert.  Also, if the certificate is not properly installed on the Web server, the web server could be failing to send the intermediate certificates required and that could cause issues as well.  

You can turn on SSL debugging by following the intstructions here. They are for 9.0 but I'm pretty sure they all still apply to 10.x:

After you have that working, read the trace messages in the logs from the top to the bottom to see where the failures are taking place.  Post back what you find out along with the status number and we'll try to help more from there.
