Resetting Weblogic Server Admin Password

Resetting Weblogic Server Admin Password:

Steps to reset the admin password of weblogic server.

  • cd <DOMAIN_HOME>/security
  •  Rename DefaultAuthenticatorInit.ldift file to DefaultAuthenticatorInit.ldift_BKP
  • Set the Environment - <DOMAIN_HOME>/bin/setDomainEnv.cmd
  • java -cp <WLS_HOME>;/server/lib/weblogic.jar:$CLASSPATH NewAdminUser NewAdminPassword . (Note the . at the end of the command)
  Make sure you are running the above command is executed from    DOMAIN_HOME>/security,   if you are executing the command from other location copy the   DefaultAuthenticatorInit.ldift file created in the current location to <DOMAIN_HOME>/security
e.g java -cp C:\Oracle\MiddlewareSOA\wlserver_12.1\server\lib\weblogic.jar;%CLASSPATH% albin albin123  
  • Move data directory under $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/<serverName>/datato another directory like data.bak
  •  Edit user name and password in the following file - <DOMAIN_HOME>/servers/<Server Name>/security/
  • Restart the admin server

Adding main class and jar files to Class-Path in manifest through ANT script

Adding main class and jar files to Class-Path in manifest through ANT script

The below ANT script will help us to add main class and jar files to Class-Path in manifest of the JAR file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<project name="jar with libs" default="compile and build" basedir=".">

<target name="compile and build">
<delete dir="bin" />
<mkdir dir="bin"/>

<!-- copy the JARs that should be added to MANIFEST class-path to "bin" directory -->
<copy todir="bin">
<fileset dir="." includes="**/lib/*.jar" />

<!-- creates your jar with the contents inside "bin" (now with your .class and .jar dependencies) -->
<jar destfile="SampleJar.jar" basedir="bin" duplicate="preserve">
<!-- Who is building this jar? -->
<attribute name="Built-By" value="Albin I" />
<!-- Information about the program itself -->
<attribute name="Implementation-Vendor" value="Company" />
<attribute name="Implementation-Title" value="Albin" />
<attribute name="Implementation-Version" value="1.0.0beta1" />
<attribute name="Class-Path" value="lib/bpm-services.jar lib/ldapjclnt11.jar lib/ojdbc14.jar lib/xmlparserv2.jar"/>

<!-- this tells which class should run when executing your jar -->
<attribute name="Main-class" value="com.import.ImportUtility" />
