I think you should try this approach as well...Try Changing your Administrator password or May be username as well...Just for testing...Just see wether it works or not?
It won't affect your existing Domain, means no side effect ... the Steps are very secure...u can take backup as well...
Please follow the Link: http://jaysensharma.wordpress.com/2009/12/15/resetting-admin-username-password/ Note: While following the Instructions mentioned in the above link...*Please SKIP the steps* mentioned in RED color, for you it is not applicable as your Current Password itself is not working so you cannot login to AdminConsole to perform those steps....Just follow the Steps mentioned in BLACK color.

Re: Unable to start the Weblogic 10 server
Posted: Dec 15, 2009 9:07 AM in response to: user6352751
I resolved my issue. DuH!
Thank you though
are u starting server with nohup ?
If yes do the following
1)set the boot.properties in the following location
create "security" folder, under this folder create boot.properties file
username=<username of console>
password=<password of console>
Save the file
2) start the server with the script startWeblogic.sh
3) Now server takes the username and password from the boot.properties file
it wont ask the username and password
What's the exact solution for this ?
Still i'm having issue , unable to start Admin-Server..
"boot.properties" file contains correct information
Can someone reply with correct solution..? thanks
You can try the following steps below and let me know if its helping:
1) Backup the WLS Domain
2) Rename/Delete $DOMAIN_DIR\security\DefaultAuthenticatorInit.ldift
3) Run the Java command:
java weblogic.security.utils.AdminAccount <new-admin-user-name> <new-admin-user-pwd> <$DOMAIN_DIR\security>
4) Delete the contents inside the file [boot.properties] under $DOMAIN_DIR\servers\<admin-server-name>\security.
5) Add the folllowing contents.
6) Rename/delete the folder: $DOMAIN_DIR\servers\<admin-server-name>\data\ldap
7) Restart the WLS server
Thank you PH for the steps..
Actually my friend tried different way , and it got resolved , something similar to you're step (6)
Rename/delete the directory “ldap” under /opt/weblogic/domains/cscgateway/servers/AdminServer/data/ and
start the Admin server ,so Admin-Server will create the new ldap directory.
Anyway thanks again for you're help , appreciated!

If you have copied the boot.properties file from other domain. It will not workout.
Create a boot.properties file and try to execute the startWeblogic.sh for two times though you get the error,
then it will encrypt automatically. Then hope it will get started.
I did two installations on 2 different boxes and ran into the same issue . The best way to resolve this issue is as follows, please note this is required only the first time,
1. Start the node manager manually without using nohup. That console window will be locked. Leave it and start a second console window.
2. Start the Admin Server, again without using nohup or boot.properties file
3. Now start the Managed Server using the following command
startManagedWebLogic.sh "my_managed_server" "http://<administration_server_host_name>:7001"
This will prompt you for the weblogic userid and password. Enter the same and your managed server will be started.
Once started, you can control C to stop the managed server. In the other window do control-C and stop the Admin Server and Node Manager. You can now create the boot.properties file in the security directory under each server directory and start the AdminServer and Managed Server using nohup.
Hope this helps
If you have forgotten your admin password then follow below steps,
1. Execute setWLSEnv.sh and setDomainEnv.sh
2. Take a backup of $WLS_HOME/security directory.
3. Move to security directory and execute below to set a new password. Basically below command will write new DefaultAuthenticatorInit.ldift file. *$ java weblogic.security.utils.AdminAccount weblogic newPassword .*
4. Rename *$WL_HOME/servers/<admin server>/data* to something like data_bkp_`date`. This will help during server start as weblogic will go and write new data directory with new security configurations.
5. Rename *$WL_HOME/servers/<admin server>/security/boot.properties* to something like boot.properties_bkp_`date`
Note: If you were not having boot.properties file created earlier, create it now with below syntax.
6. Perform server startup using ./startWeblogic.sh
This has worked for me earlier...!
