Weblogic Fatal error in NodeManager server Identity key store file not found


I got Weblogic Nodemanager start error during the Primavera P6 EPPM 18.8 installation.


When i look at the log files of weblogic, I have seen following errors.

Execute setDomainEnv.sh script to set environment.


[oracle@MehmetSalih bin]$ . ./setDomainEnv.sh


go to $DOMAIN_HOME/security directory

[oracle@MehmetSalih bin]$ cd ../security/

execute following java query to generate certificate

[oracle@MehmetSalih security]$ java utils.CertGen -keyfilepass DemoIdentityPassPhrase -certfile democert -keyfile demokey -strength 2048 -noskid
Generating a certificate with common name MehmetSalih.localdomain and key strength 2048
issued by CA with certificate from /u01/app/wlserver/server/lib/CertGenCA.der file and key from /u01/app/wlserver/server/lib/CertGenCAKey.der file
[oracle@MehmetSalih security]$



If above step is completed successfully then execute following.

[oracle@MehmetSalih security]$ java utils.ImportPrivateKey -keystore DemoIdentity.jks -storepass DemoIdentityKeyStorePassPhrase -keyfile demokey.pem -keyfilepass DemoIdentityPassPhrase -certfile democert.pem -alias demoidentity
No password was specified for the key entry

Imported private key demokey.pem and certificate democert.pem
into a new keystore DemoIdentity.jks of type jks under alias demoidentity
[oracle@MehmetSalih security]$


If you got below error when you generate certificate then check your Oracle home and Java Home

[oracle@MehmetSalih security]$ java utils.CertGen -keyfilepass DemoIdentityPassPhrase -certfile democert -keyfile demokey -strength 2048 -noskid
Error: Could not find or load main class utils.CertGen
[oracle@MehmetSalih security]$


Now we have solved certificate problem, we can start Weblogic Nodemanager like following.

nohup sh /u01/app/user_projects/domains/PrimaveraP6EPPM/bin/startNodeManager.sh &


If Weblogic Nodemanager Started successfully, then start weblogic server like following.

nohup sh /u01/app/user_projects/domains/PrimaveraP6EPPM/bin/startWebLogic.sh -Dweblogic.management.username=weblogic -Dweblogic.management.password=dev12345 &

    I’m curious to find out what blog system you are using? I’m having some small security issues with my latest website and I would like to find something more safeguarded. Do you have any suggestions?|
