Force Shutdown of weblogic in OBIEE 11G

I was starting the BI Services and came across this error

Problem:

I got the error as below:


<Jan 12, 2015 10:40:41 AM IST> <Notice> <WebLogicServer> <BEA-000365> <Server state changed to FAILED>
<Jan 12, 2015 10:40:41 AM IST> <Error> <WebLogicServer> <BEA-000383> <A critical service failed. The server will shut itself down>
<Jan 12, 2015 10:40:41 AM IST> <Notice> <WebLogicServer> <BEA-000365> <Server state changed to FORCE_SHUTTING_DOWN>


Reason: A boot identity file contains user credentials for starting and stopping an instance of Weblogic Server. An Administration Server can refer to this file for user credentials instead of prompting you to provide them. Because the credentials are encrypted, using a boot identity file is more secure than storing unencrypted credentials in a startup or shutdown script. If there is no boot identity file when you start a server, the server instance prompts you to enter a username and password. The boot identity file can be different for each server instance in the domain.
So, we have to change the password in boot. Properties file also..


Solution:
Navigate to “boot. Properties” and change with your new password as below.

Admin Server boot. Properties path: <BIEE_HOME>\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\servers\AdminServer\security


Note: The User name and Password is already in encrypted format, just remove that and change the entry.

 Password=welcome1234
username=weblogic
Similarly do the same for bi_server1

BI Server boot.properties path:
 <BIEE_HOME>\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\servers\bi_server1\security

For example: password=welcome1234
username=weblogic
Save these files and start the services again. You should be able to start the server
