Unable to start weblogic admin server for a newly created domain on Weblogic 9.2 version due to authentication issue

While working on Weblogic 9.2 I could mark one of the issues faced during trying to start weblogic admin server for a newly created domain using startweblogic.sh script.On running the startmanagedserver script the script asks for authentication ie username.The moment you enter the admin username the script fails and so does the managed server fails to start.

The issue mentioned above is shown below:

***************************************************

* To start WebLogic Server, use a username and *
* password assigned to an admin-level user. For *
* server administration, use the WebLogic Server *
* console at http://hostname:port/console

user.>
Enter username to boot WebLogic server:admin
-bash: admin: command not found
[1]+ Stopped ./startWebLogic.sh


The weblogic startup script prompts for a username. On typing the username the script fails.

Cause:



The weblogic startup script is expecting the weblogic admin username and password which it should be picking from the boot.properties file.The file should be present in the following location:
/u01/apps/oracle/product/bea/WLI103/user_projects/domains/oer_domain/servers/oerServer/security/
The file was not present here as the installation by some chance/error does not create it. So it was unable to start the weblogic server.


Resolution:


1. Go to directory /u01/apps/oracle/product/bea/WLI103/user_projects/domains/oer_domain/servers/oerServer/security/


2. Create a file using vi command named boot.properties


3. Enter the following to the file:
Username=weblogic #Weblogic admin username
Password=weblogic #Weblogic admin password

4. Save the file
5. Go to /u01/apps/oracle/product/bea/WLI103/user_projects/domains/wl_server/bin

6. Issue the command ./startWeblogic.sh &


This time the issue is resolved.You will be able to start the weblogic server without issues.

Let me know if you have any doubts...

Happy Learning
