Weblogic very slow during startup

Why does my Weblogic Server takes a Long Time to Start?

On Linux or Solaris operating systems, this behavior is very common. Especially in new installations.
There is more information about this behavior in “Doc ID 1574979.1“.

The solution to this problem is very simple.
Just edit the java.security file that is inside the $$JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/
Find the line with the content “securerandom.source=file:/dev/urandom” and replace with “securerandom.source=file:/dev/./urandom”.

If do you prefer, just run the command:

sed -i ‘s/securerandom.source=file:\/dev\/urandom/securerandom.source=file:\/dev\/.\/urandom/g’ $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/java.security

 

Reset the AdminServer Password in WebLogic 11g and 12c

Reset the AdminServer Password in WebLogic 11g and 12c:

source $DOMAIN_HOME/bin/setDomainEnv.sh
cd $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/AdminServer/
mv data data-old
cd $DOMAIN_HOME/security
java weblogic.security.utils.AdminAccount weblogic .

Restart the AdminServer.

If the weblogic has the file boot.properties in $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/AdminServer/security/, should be adjusted the credentials of user and password, before restart the AdminServer.

OBS: Check the post on decrypt datasource password, which can also be used to decrypt the credentials of boot.properties file, avoiding making the above procedure, if this file exists.

That’s all for today.

In weblogic 11G, there are several JFR files in /tmp directory:

These files are from DMS (Dynamic Monitoring Service) and they are created when application server is running.
