Symptoms

The problem is that customer using the Admin Console updated the credential of the Admin Account to the EmbeddedLDAP. When start Weblogic they are still using the old credential to start the Weblogic. That is why the server failed to startup.

Modified the boot.properties with the correct password and confirmed that the server can be started.

However,  customer is using Window Service to start Weblogic where the credential is stored in the service. In this case, the server is no longer be able to start using Windows Service.
