    Hi,

    From the following message:-

    <Authentication denied: Boot identity not valid; The user name and/or password from the boot identity file (boot.properties) is not valid.

    it seems like ur boot.properties file is changed or corrupted. Can u try creating a new boot.properties file and restart ur server.

    Follow the following steps:
    1) remove the boot.properties file completely from the managed server directory.
    2) remove the ManagedServerDir/data/ldap directory completely.
    3) Always keep backup of files before removing it.
    4) Now try to start the server from the command prompt and provide the username/password used to login to the Admin Console.

    In my case, it turned out to be the password for database has expired. My domain configuration is not using the default embedded pointbase, but instead it points to RDMS (oracle database). Once fixed the password expired password, i tried to restore the boot.properties and able to start the server again.

    Hi,
    To resolve this issue you can choose following ways.

    1)Delete your boot.propertied file inside your manage server and then restart your manage server it will get configuration from admin server.
    2)
    As you said that your other manager servers are working fine.You can copy boot.properties file from another manage server to manager server which is giving problem ,it will also help.
    In this way delete your already exist boot.properties file (you can find it inside security folder in your manager server)
