I have a domain install to a second machine that have servers that are part of a cluster. I want to manually change on of the values in the config.xml but it keeps getting overwritten. There are a bunch of backup_configX.xml files, if I delete them they come back too when I try to start my managed server. There is also a config.lok, if I delete that it comes back too. Has anyone else seen this? Is there a way to stop it?
better to disable the "acquire lock automatically" in the weblogic console "preferences" page, to avoid generating a lock file all the time.
For editing manually the config.xml, it's not really recommended, read here
especially don't do it while any server in the domain is running.
On the new machine I am trying to create a new set of servers to be added to the cluster. However I am running into errors, of which various post suggest changing some of the security stuff in the config. But I have not found a way to persist my modifications. Each time I restart it gets overwritten again.
I am running in production mode, could this be the problem?
I have tried stopping everything, delete all .lok files on both machines, and restarting everything. On startup the .lok files reappear and my changes are reverted.
