    Starting up and shutting down BI Services

    monty.latiolais
      I have a question for all you smart folks...

      When you shut down the BI services you have to enter a (weblogic) username and password. This is encrypted and stored in a file which is read when the services are re-started. From what we can tell we can enter any username and password in here and it has no apparent effect on the restart.

      Questions
      a)     Why are you asked to enter it on shutdown, but not on startup?
      b)     What function is it performing, and if we enter an incorrect one what is actually happening?

      Thanks!

          The below are my assumptions, correct me if I'm wrong.

          b)     What function is it performing, and if we enter an incorrect one what is actually happening?
          --> I'm assuming the files in logging_1.0.1.0.jar are taking care this process

          a)     Why are you asked to enter it on shutdown, but not on startup?
          --> During the shutting down the process will validate given credentials with boot.properties file
          --> I thing its kind a verifying the person who trying to shutting down the server

          If helps pls mark
