E1: INST: Weblogic Admin Server Password Requirement During Fat Client Installation (Doc ID 2722660.1)

Last updated on MARCH 12, 2021

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When installing a fat client, the weblogic admin password needs to be provided. When installing for the first time on a fresh machine, we can provide any strong password for the wls admin server. On any subsequent full package deployment on the same machine, the wls password input screen is prompted. As per the installation guides, we can provide the existing or a new password.

Extract from the installation guide:

7.2 Installing the WebLogic Web Client (WLSH4A)

On WebLogic Admin Server Information, you are prompted for information that is necessary to access and configure the local WebLogic Server, which is already installed on the Development Client. Using these credentials the WLSH4A installer is able to create and configure a WebLogic Admin user and

If it not necessary for users to know any of this information for an existing WebLogic Server Admin user or installation because this installation process deletes any such existing information and recreates the required components
using the information entered on this screen.

The Admin user is required by the WLSH4A installer during the installation.
Although not normally needed by users on the Development Client, you may need to sign into the WebLogic Server Administrative Console (for example, to perform administrative tasks). In that case, you will need to provide this
same Admin user and its password when signing in. Therefore you should record or remember these Admin user and password credentials.

However if we provide a new password, instead of the existing password then the installation of the Fat client failed.
