In the previous post, we learned about Weblogic installation.
How to perform WebLogic installation
I would be explaining WebLogic domain creation in this post
(1) First set all the environment variable
(2) Now we will be creating the WebLogic domain. Initially, it will just host the Admin Server. We can add Manage server through GUI
Choose the first option “Create a weblogic domain”
Choose the first option “Generate a domain automatically configured to support the following product”
Enter the domain name and Location. We would be creating test_domain at the following location /u00/app/oracle/weblogic/user_projects/domain. This is also the standard location for domain creation and clicks next
Configure the weblogic administrator username and password and click next
Choose Production mode and give the location of the JDK installed and click next
Choose option Administration server only as we are just configuring administration server initially and click next
Give the name of the Admin server, port and click next
Check the configuration summary and click next
This will show all the processing is done and then present the domain location and Admin URL. Click done to exit this page
How to start the Administration Server
1) Log in as the oracle user on the machine tech.com where the weblogic server is installed and set the below environment variable
2) Navigate to the below folder
3) Start the Administration Server:
[[email protected]]$ ./startWebLogic.sh
4) The server will initiate the startup process and ask for the WebLogic Administrator
username and password:
Enter a username to boot the WebLogic server:
Enter the password to boot the WebLogic server:
5) Type weblogic as the username and the <password> value you previously specified
during domain creation.
6). WebLogic Administration Server will start.
The Administration Server is now running and waiting for connections in the host and port
that are specified during domain creation at http://tech.com:7005/console.
<Started the WebLogic Server Administration Server
“AdminServer” for domain “test_domain” running in production
How to avoid entering the weblogic username and password and start it in the background
1. Go to the Administration Server root folder:
$ cd $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/AdminServer
2. Create and enter a new directory:
$ mkdir security
$ cd security
3. Create a new file called boot.properties with weblogic as the username and the
<password> value you specified:
$ echo -ne “username=weblogic\npassword=
<password>” > boot.properties
$ cat boot.properties
The next time you start WebLogic Administration Server, it will use the credentials
from the boot.properties file. The file will also be encrypted:
4) start the weblogic server in the background
nohup ./startWebLogic.sh &
The <7585> value is the process ID of the Administration Server. The standard output (stdout) and standard error (stderr) of the process will be appended
to a file called $DOMAIN_HOME/bin/nohup.out.
5) Check the boot. properties, the entries will be encrypted
How to access the Administration server Console
1) Open internet explorer and navigate to
It will open the below page
2) enter the weblogic username and password to login to console
