We had to do this for weblogic 8. Not sure if it will work on 7.

update the boot.properties with username and password:
#Mon Mar 17 15:34:44 CDT 2008
password=thepassword
username=weblogicadmin

Then run this to reset a webloic admin password
java weblogic.jar weblogic.security.utils.AdminAccount weblogicadmin thepassword .
DONT FORGET THE DOT AT THE END!

Next move the ldap directory to ldap.old

start the admin server

even I didn't know that. I had asked to lots of people but could never get a solution. I thought that we only need to edit the credentials in boot. properties & config.xml

the username & password in these files is encryped using AES, and if you don't have a key, getting the values would be hard. (at least with weblogic 10.3.2)

do you suppose we could Use AES to generate a new username and password and the insert the newly encrypted values in the files?

Edit the boot.properties file which is the user_projects\domains\Your Domain here
check for boot.properties file
enter your own user name and password in place of user name and password . save it
Restart the server

enter the new user name and password

This won't work... The attributes to the boot.properties are used while the server boots..... and if the password is not found there, the password will be read from the password file and will be rewritten to the boot.properties file.

The command to reset the console password would be : java weblogic.security.utils.AdminAccount <username> <password> . (dot)

Hope this helps.

If you have followed the first step, you should have your java classpath set for you:

Step1). open a Command Prompt and then run “setDomainEnv.sh” or “setDomainEnv.cmd”.

Or I think you can use "java -cp C:\bea\wlserver_10.3\server\lib\weblogic.jar;%CLASSPATH% weblogic.security.utils.AdminAccount weblogicadmin thepassword ." if you already have a java/JAVA_HOME setup on your system.

Well I went through the first few steps and it did create a new defaultAuthenticator.ldift file but it does not allow me to log into the console with it. Any clues?

It should still be possible to retrieve the password for the WebLogic Admin Console using the method described here.

You can also refer the below link:

NOTE: Set the classpath by running the setDomainEnv script at first.

Thanks, Hemant.

The topic is about Administration Console Credentials. most of people are talking about the username/password to start Weblogic Server. Kind of deviating...

Anyway, it's a worth reading,,
