Hello all,

I have recently installed weblogic 10 application server on a Linux box successfully, and then created a domain and was trying to start the application server with the start script like
./startWebLogic.sh
I have configured the user name and password to be weblogic/weblogic.
However I received the following error, can someone please help... Thanks in advance..

    I have configured the user name and password to be weblogic/weblogic.
    How or where you has done it?

    If you are using a boot.properties file make sure you are using the following sintaxis:
    username=weblogic
    password=weblogic

    Sorry the userid was created by the system administrator. However I configured the password ..
    After installing the weblogic, during the process of creating a new domain for my application.
    I went to this directory and then ran the script ./config.sh and then installation wizard takes me through the various options..
    cd /opt/weblogic/wl10.3.0/wlserver_10.3/common/bin

    Well, maybe you forgot the password or it was not properly defined, if you need recover your password this post can be useful Re: Reset admin password in Weblogic 9.2

    By other hand, recreate your domain :)

    Thanks for your reponse, before posting my question here :

    1. I have tried the option of creating another domain configured to another port and I still get the exact same error when I try to start the weblogic server for the first time.

    2. restarted the entire Unix box, still didnt work.

    3. Deleted the cache, logs, tmp, data folders under the AdminServer ( my traget server ), still didnt work. However I got a different error in this case.

    I didnt forget my password, that is the reason I had the password same as the userid. To your point, I have not even reached a point where the start up script prompts me for a password. I get this error without me entering any password.

    Thanks

    If your domain is in development mode you are not prompet for user/password.
    Check if exist the SerializedSystemIni.dat file in $DOMAIN_HOME/security/

    Thank you again for your time on this issue.
    Domain is set to production mode and Yes the file SerializedSystemIni.dat exists in $domain/security.

    Create a boot.properties file and put it in $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/AdminServer/security/

    And retry...

    Please, show us the exception if this occurs

    What should I have in the boot.properties file ?
  • 9. Re: Unable to start the Weblogic 10 server

    Only this lines (user administrator credentials):

    username="the username"
    password="the password"


    For example:

    username=weblogic
    password=weblogic

    But I must confess one thing here, I was able to successfully install WL 10 , created a domain and installed my application on another Linux box and I havent found the folder security under AdminServer neither the boot.properties. And that server starts and stops fine.

    Thanks

    Make sure you has defined the correct username and its password in boot.properties file.
    A boot.propertis file avoids to be prompted for a username and password.

    I have tried both with quotes and without quotes :

    username=weblogic
    password=weblogic

    username="weblogic"
    password="weblogic"
