      weblogic.security.SecurityInitializationException: Authentication denied: Boot identity not valid; The user name and/or password from the boot identity file (boot.properties) is not valid. The boot identity may have been changed since the boot identity file was created. Please edit and update the boot identity file with the proper values of username and password. The first time the updated boot identity file is used to start the server, these new values are encrypted.

          I am not sure how you got into this state, but to clear it up you can edit the boot.properties file to enter (clear text) the username and password for the server (entered when running the Configuration Wizard).

          The boot.properties file is located in your domain at:
          <domain root>/servers/AdminServer/security

          Just enter the username and password in the file:


          WebLogic Server will boot up using these values and immediately encrypt the username and password in the file.

          An alternate approach would be to delete boot.properties in which case WLS will prompt you for the id/pw each time it is started/stopped.

                One more thing. If you switch the portal db schema say from working pointbase domain to new say Oracle database, first you will run full portal schema in the database. BUT make sure you run this .sql file also in this new db schema: ..\user_projects\domains\yourDomain\security\SQLAuthenticator.sql. This .sql file will have the username and encrypted password and other default entries.

                Anytime a new domain is cretaed, automatically this .sql file is created and executed in that db schema. So changing the db schema later on requires that you run this .sql in that new schema also.
