Changing Weblogic Administrative Password in EBS/Apps R12.2 if it has been Lost or Forgot


For the EBS WebLogic domain, the Node Manager and WebLogic AdminServer passwords must be same. If the passwords are different, the AD control scripts will not work properly.

The following steps has to be performed in RUN file system.

Steps:

1)  Shut down all running services. Since the AdminServer password is not known, the servers cannot be stopped from the console and so must be killed.

1. Connect to the Oracle E-Business Suite instance and source the application tier environment file.

2. Identify the PIDs of Node Manager, AdminServer, and all running Managed
Servers:
$ ps -ef | grep "NodeManager"
$ ps -ef | grep "weblogic.Name=AdminServer"
$ ps -ef | grep "weblogic.Name=forms-c4ws_server"
$ ps -ef | grep "weblogic.Name=forms_server"
$ ps -ef | grep "weblogic.Name=oafm_server"
$ ps -ef | grep "weblogic.Name=oacore_server"

3. Kill all these processes, starting with Node Manager and followed by the Managed Servers.

2) Back up these folders, and then delete them

/security/ DefaultAuthenticatorInit.ldift
/servers//data/ldap
/servers//security/boot.properties
/servers//data/nodemanager/boot.properties

3)  Set up a new environment to change the WLS AdminServer password.

1. Start a new session and connect to the Oracle E-Business Suite instance.
2. Do not source the application tier environment file.
3. Run the following command to source the WebLogic Server domain environment:
$ cd /bin
$ source setDomainEnv.sh
4. Run the following commands:
$ cd /security
$ java weblogic.security.utils.AdminAccount
.

4) Start AdminServer from the command line. You will be prompted for the WebLogic

Server username and password, so that the AdminServer boot.properties file can be generated.
1. Go to the EBS Domain Home:
$ cd
2. Start AdminServer:
$ java -Dweblogic.system.StoreBootIdentity=true -Dweblogic.Name=AdminServer weblogic.Server
Where:
is the same as the value of context variable
ss_nm_jvm_startup_properties
The above command prompts for the WebLogic Server username and
password:
Enter username to boot WebLogic server:
Enter password to boot WebLogic server:
Provide the same credentials as you provided in Step 3.

5) Change the Node Manager password.

1. Log in to the WebLogic Administration console.
2. Click the 'Lock & Edit' button.
3. In the left panel, click on the EBS Domain link.
4. Select the 'Security' tab.
5. Click on the 'Advanced' link.
6. Edit the 'Node Manager password' field and set it to the new WebLogic Server password. The password should be same as set in Step 3.
7. Edit the 'Confirm Node Manager Password' field and set it to the new
WebLogic Server password. The password should be same as set in Step 3.
8. Save and activate the changes.

6) The first time, AdminServer has to be stopped from the Admin console. Follow
these steps:
1. Log in to the WebLogic Administration console.
2. Shut down AdminServer.

7) Set up your environment to start AdminServer again. AdminServer should now be started using the normal AD script, which will also start Node Manager using the new password.

1. Launch a new session and connect to the Oracle E-Business Suite instance.
2. Source the application tier environment file.
3. Start AdminServer with the following command:
$ $ADMIN_SCRIPTS_HOME/adadminsrvctl.sh start

8) Start the Managed Servers. For the first time, all Managed Servers should be started from the WebLogic Server Admin console. This step will create boot.properties files for the respective Managed Servers. Follow these steps:

1. Log in to the WebLogic Server Administration Console.
2. Start all Managed Servers, one at a time.

9) Shut down all the Managed Servers. This is so the new credentials will be picked up at the next startup. Follow these steps:

1. Log in to the WebLogic AdminServer console.
2. Shut down all Managed Servers.
3. Shut down AdminServer.

10) Shut down Node Manager using the normal AD script.
$ $ADMIN_SCRIPTS_HOME/adnodemgrctl.sh stop

11) Copy the boot.properties file for each Managed Server.
WebLogic Server native scripts use the boot.properties file. The above steps have created the boot.properties file under /servers//data/nodemanager, which is used by Node Manager. For each Managed Server, copy the newly-generated boot.properties file from /servers/
name>/data/nodemanager to /servers//security.

The EBS WebLogic Server domain password has now been changed, and all servers can now be started using the normal AD scripts.
To start AdminServer:
$ADMIN_SCRIPTS_HOME/adadminsrvctl.sh start
To start the Managed Servers:
$ $ADMIN_SCRIPTS_HOME/admanagedsrvctl.sh start

12) The above steps have changed the Oracle WebLogic AdminServer password on the run file system. You now need to perform an fs_clone operation, to change the WebLogic EBS Domain password on the patch file system:

1. Launch a new session and connect to the Oracle E-Business Suite instance.
2. Source the application tier environment file.
3. Run the following command:
$ adop phase=fs_clone
