We are running Weblogic 12c on Windows 7 and installing it as an administrative user. If this same user accesses the Middleware directory, we don't have any issues. However, if any other user with administrative privileges tries to access the directory, it is denied until the user navigates with Windows Explorer to the Middleware directory and acknowledges the UAC popup. The UAC popup only happens the first time they access the directory.
Is there a way to avoid having every user navigate to the directory to give themselves permission?
This cannot be addressed/configured at the Weblogic Server level. The Security configuration need to be set at OS level. You need to contact your OS administrator to add/remove privileges to the Middleware home directory such that it grants access to the respective users.
