E-Business Suite 12.2 Technology Stack, Weblogic HTTP Server issues


After applying a patch to the external Application tier node, the WLS Application tier managed servers will not start.

Expect the Application tier managed servers to start successfully.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Apply a patch to a 12.2.4 Application tier node.

Following is the error in oacore_server.log and oafm_server.log

weblogic.security.SecurityInitializationException: Authentication denied: Boot identity not valid; The user name and/or password from the boot identity file (boot.properties) is not valid. The boot identity may have been changed since the boot identity file was created. Please edit and update the boot identity file with the proper values of username and password. The first time the updated boot identity file is used to start the server, these new values are encrypted.
