Authentication Error Message

Greetings, I'm attempting to start weblogic managed servers using a script and I'm receiving the following error message. I see several posts for the same error message, but nothing that states how it was resolved. I'm desperately seeking a resolution to this issue. I'm very new to Weblogic and am hoping that I can receive some assistance.

<Apr 6, 2009 8:05:00 AM CDT> <Critical> <Security> <BEA-090403> <Authentication for user admin denied>
***************************************************************************
The WebLogic Server did not start up properly.
Reason: weblogic.security.SecurityInitializationException: Authentication for user admin denied.

Thanks in advance,

Best Regards,

Hi,

hum.. in fact you have some options for this.. The most straightforward will be to create under $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/$server_name/ a directory called security and under it a file called boot.properties . In this file place the username/password in plain text like:

username=weblogic
password=weblogic

save this file and exit. Next time you try to run the desired server it will read from this file, encrypt username and password and start the server.

Besides that, my suggestion is for you to use nodemanager to control the managed servers. Than you will be able to control servers from Admin console or using WLST scripts.

Marcos,

Thank you very much for responding. I am currently using Node Manager to administer my managed server.. I looked for the boot.properties file and I'm not seeing that file at all. The version of Weblogic that I'm running is 8.14, SP4. Just a point of clarification.... if I'm using Node Manager, I should not receive this error message when attempting to start servers with a script? Should I include Node Manager in my startup/shutdown script? Also, would it be better if I sent my script for you to review? Perhaps I'm missing something.

Thanks again in advance for any and all assistance,

Hi,

Unfortunately almost 2 years have passed since last time I used WL 8. So I really can't remember from top of my mind. I'll suggest you to take a look at docs for this version:

http://edocs.bea.com/wls/docs81/ConsoleHelp/startstop.html#1225212

I believe you can find solution there.
