As far as I remember, DefaultAuthenticator is backed by embedded LDAP. I don't know if it's a good idea, but you should be able to edit your
and add weblogic entry there. You can just copy that entry from another domain.
Maybe you can also create new domain and then replace your configuration with appropriate config files ...
I tried copying DefaultAuthenticatorInit.ldift from my colleague's machine but it didn't help. Do you reckon, it might need a system reboot to take effect? I didn't restart it y'day.
for your 2nd option, I'm told that there is a domain creation script but this is something I'm clueless about, so if you could throw more pointers around it, it'll be great.
PS: If it is not solved soon, I would've to reinstall OBIEE which sounds very disappointing :(.
It definitely requires reboot if you change backing storage this way.
Regarding domain creation, there should be a script like $WLS_HOME/common/bin/config.sh. It is an interactive application that helps you to create new domain. You can then take DefaultAuthenticatorInit.ldift from that new domain. Or the other way round, you can move your config/* to a new domain.
However, you should be 100 % aware of what you are doing. Backup everything before you start and always have a second option in case anything goes wrong. The re-installation is the latest option.
Hisaak - I was in a hurry, so have re-installed for now. thanks for your help.
Sometime next week, I intend to re-try setting-up LDAP server as a provider through WLS console again. 'weblogic' user deletion had happened during R&D for this only. Hope, it works then.
After doing all necessary steps, I could see all LDAP users correctly loaded (through ‘Users and Groups’ tab in WLS console). However, I’m unable to log into OBIEE Answers with any LDAP user; it everytime throws following error -
Unable to Sign In
An invalid User Name or Password was entered.
I also enabled debugging and checked AdminServer\logs but to no avail. Can you suggest, what could be wrong?
