Weblogic : Admin Password Reset

There are many cases where we need to reset the admin password for web logic. Here is a Process of how we can reset the password for the web logic admin account.

1.Set up the Environment for the Web logic Domain

$ cd $MIDDLEWARE_HOME/user_projects/domains/{your_domain}/bin/
where your_domain is the domain_name for your Web logic domain

$ cd /root/Oracle/MiddleWare/user_projects/domains/base_domain/bin

Execute the script

. ./

2.Shut Down the Web logic Domain

3.Now change the User Name and Password in the is available at

now open the and change the user name and password values with plain test values

4.Now go the Domain Security Location which is
and change the name of the DefaultAuthenticatorInit.idift to DefaultAuthenticatorInit.idift.old
( This Step is optional it seems , try with out doing this but make sure you take a copy of the file)

5.Now create a New password like

java -cp /root/Oracle/Middleware/wlserver_10.3/server/lib/weblogic.jar:$CLASSPATH hello hello123 .

I am giving the user name as hello and password hello123.

Note : Dont forget dot (“.”) At the end else it will throw “In valid Arguments” error

6.Now Restart the Server and login the admin-console using the hello and hello123.

More to Come , Happy learning :-)
