$FMW_HOME/user_projects/domains/EBS_domain_<SID>/servers/formsc4ws_server1/data/nodemanager/boot.properties

$FMW_HOME/user_projects/domains/EBS_domain_<SID>/servers/forms_server1/data/nodemanager/boot.properties

$FMW_HOME/user_projects/domains/EBS_domain_<SID>/servers/oacore_server1/data/nodemanager/boot.properties

$FMW_HOME/user_projects/domains/EBS_domain_<ID>/servers/oafm_server1/data/nodemanager/boot.properties

 

Use a text editor to edit each of the above files and change the password to the new password.

Remember: Watch out if you mistakenly add any space/special character in the password.

Note: After the services are restarted in the next step, the password you entered will be obfuscated (not human readable).

13. Stop and restart all application tier services Use the adstpall.sh and adstrtall.sh scripts (.cmd command files on Windows)Ensure all services start successfully, and then test the Oracle WebLogic Server console login and Oracle E-Business Suite login.
