Change Weblogic password in EBS 12.2.x

The EBS WebLogic Domain uses Node Manager to control the Administration Server and the managed servers. For the EBS WebLogic Domain, the Node Manager and Oracle WebLogic Server Administration User password must be same, otherwise the AD control scripts will not work properly.

Important: If you need to change the Administration User password,you must change the Node Manager password first. If you do not do this, the WebLogic Server configuration change will not be detected and the next online patching cycle may fail.

The instructions that follow should be performed on the run file system. The password change will be automatically propagated to the patch file system during the next adop prepare phase or fs_clone operation.

1. Shut down all application tier services except the Admin Server.
On the primary node, run the command:
 $ <ADMIN_SCRIPTS_HOME>/ -skipNM -skipAdmin
 On all secondary nodes, run the command:

2. Change the Oracle WebLogic Server Administration User password by performing the following steps on the run file system of the primary node.
 Source the environment on the run file system.

The above command is available only if TXK DELTA 7 is applied.
If that is not the case, the password need to changed from Console and few steps need to be performed

3. Start all services on all nodes, using the command:
