Web Browser is Looping/Redirecting when Connecting to WebLogic AdminServer Console (Doc ID 2646637.1)

Last updated on MARCH 01, 2024

Applies to:

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


When attempting to change the URL from a WebLogic Domain's AdminServer Console to a WebLogic 12.1.3 Domain's AdminServer Console, the browser proceeds to spin/load and eventually fails with the following error.

Cannot reach this page
Make sure the web address <HOSTNAME> is correct

The initial access and navigation on the environment works fine. The issue occurs when the URL is modified to point to the 12.1.3 environment. The same behavior is seen when a new tab is used in the same browser window.
If a new browser is opened, the 12.1.3 environment can be accessed. If the URL is then changed to environment, it also can be accessed. This means the behavior is only seen when going from 12.2.1.x to 12.1.3(or lower). Put another way, newer version to older version.
