          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.



          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.


          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.
