Last updated on APRIL 13, 2021

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Ops Center - Version 12.1 to 12.1 [Release 12.0]

This document describes how to change the security credentials for all the components in an Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud machine. After configuring an Exalogic machine and installing the Exalogic Control stack by using the Exalogic Configuration Utility (ECU), you can use the procedures in this document to change all the security credentials from the default settings that were configured by the ECU. You can also use these procedures to change the security credentials for specific Exalogic components at any time.


The target audience for this document are system administrators who are familiar with the architecture and deployment of Exalogic and Exalogic Control, and have experience administering Linux systems, Oracle WebLogic Server, and Exalogic Control (Oracle VM Manager and Enterprise Manager Ops Center).


An Exalogic rack consists of a variety of hardware and software components, each of which has unique credentials. Changing the passwords of each component would require you to log in to each component individually and synchronize the passwords with Exalogic Control.

ExaPasswd tool from Exalogic Lifecycle Toolkit (ELLC) automates this time-consuming process.

For details, on ExaPasswd tool, please review Exalogic Lifecycle Toolkit Release 14.2 (Doc ID 1912063.1)

It is highly recommended to use the ExaPasswd for component password change in Exalogic.

In case if the ExaPasswd fails change the password for any component in question, then the manual password change procedure laid out in this Document can be used.
