          Hi,

          1. Make sure all the services are down

          2. change directory to <Middleware_Home>\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\bin

          cd <Middleware_Home>\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\bin

          3. Source the setDomainEnv.cmd(Windows) / setDomainEnv.sh (Linux) script so we can get all the WebLogic variables set correctly

          In windows: setDomainEnv.cmd

          In Linux: . setDomainEnv.sh

          4. Now change the directory to security directory in your instance.

          cd <Middleware_Home>\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\security

          5. Move the DefaultAuthenticatorInit.ldift to a backup file

          In Windows:

          mv DefaultAuthenticatorInit.ldift DefaultAuthenticatorInit_old.ldift

          In Linux:

          mv DefaultAuthenticatorInit.ldift DefaultAuthenticatorInit_old.ldift

          6. Run the “java weblogic.security.utils.AdminAccount newuser newpassword .” to generate a new DefaultAuthenticatorInit.ldift with a new user with the assigned password within the security directory

          eg: java weblogic.security.utils.AdminAccount weblogic weblogic123 .

          Note: replace newuser and newpassword with a user and password of your choosing. Ensure the password is a minimum of 8 characters and contains at least one numeric character. Also, don’t forget the period “.” at the end of the above command, it is required.

          7. Change directory to <Middleware_Home>\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\servers\AdminServer\security

          cd <Middleware_Home>\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\servers\AdminServer\security\

          8. Edit the boot.properties file and replace newpassword and newusername with the user and password you defined in step 6. Do this for all the servers in the domain.

          password=newpassword

          username=newusername

          The boot.properties will get encrypted once the admin server starts up

          9. Rename or remove directory <Middleware_Home>\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\servers\AdminServer\data\ldap as it will get recreated once the WebLogic Admin server starts.

          e.g:

          rename <Middleware_Home>\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\servers\AdminServer\data\ldap <Middleware_Home>\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\servers\AdminServer\data\ldap_OLD

          10. Change directory to <Middleware_Home>\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\bin and start the Weblogic Admin Server

          In Windows: startWebLogic.cmd

          In Linux: ./ startWebLogic.sh

          11. Once the weblogic server is up, you’ll be able to login to Console with the new weblogic Admin user and password.
