A. When you create a domain, the Configuration Wizard prompts you to provide the username
and password for an initial administrative user. If you create the domain in development mode,
the wizard saves the username and encrypted password in a boot identity file. A WebLogic Server
instance can refer to a boot identity file during its startup process. If a server instance does not
find such a file, it prompts you to enter credentials.
If you create a domain in production mode, or if you want to change user credentials in an existing
boot identity file, you can create a new boot identity file. WebLogic Server does not support
copying a boot identity file from one server root directory to another. For information on creating
and using boot identity files, see “Boot Identity Files” in Administration Console Online Help.
