Unable to start Weblogic: PasswordEncrypted of ServerStartMBean

April 25, 2012 Leave a comment

The Weblogic administration server is not starting and the complete error message is:

“In production mode, it’s not allowed to set a clear text value to the property: PasswordEncrypted of ServerStartMBean”

If this is occurring in Weblogic versions 10.3.1 or earlier, then it is a known bug with the administration console. The bug will cause a <password-encrypted> tag of a certain weblogic instance in your domain to be set to a null value in the config.xml. This will happen if you modify some startup arguments of that instance in the administration console. Weblogic will interpret the null value as a plain text password, which is not allowed in a production domain, thus the error in starting the server.

There is a patch that you can apply for this issue, but there are also some quick workarounds that might prove very useful if there is a time constraint for starting the administration service.

WebLogic AdminServer startup and shutdown scripts

Right after creating a WebLogic domain, you can navigate to the domain directory and start the administration server using the startWebLogic.sh script.

The solution below describes two WLST scripts (startAdmin.jy and stopAdmin.jy ) and two platform dependent scripts that you use to call the Jython ones. (startAdmin.sh and stopAdmin.sh for Unix or startAdmin.bat and stopAdmin.bat for Windows)
