Unable to Create UnixMachine Using WebLogic REST API (Doc ID 2423929.1)

Last updated on MAY 26, 2023

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version to [Release 12c]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When a machine is created with type "UnixMachine" from the Admin Console, and then the machine's attributes are checked using a REST call, you see that the type is "UnixMachine."

However, when a machine is created using a REST call (as described below), the resulting type always is "Machine" rather than the desired "UnixMachine":

It is possible to create machines of type "UnixMachine" in WebLogic, but only from the AdminConsole (and also probably with WLST command "createUnixMachine").

The only problem is that it is somehow ignored by the REST API, the resulting type always is "Machine" rather than the desired "UnixMachine".
