    Where new user is weblogic1 & password is webl0gic1

cd <DOMAIN>/servers/<ADMIN_SERVER>/data/ldap

rm DefaultAuthenticatormyrealmInit.initialized

     [ Note: A new file will be automatically created when weblogic is started. ]

    Enter username to boot WebLogic server: adminuser1
    Enter password to boot WebLogic server: webl0gic

   ( in development mode it will not ask you for username/password )

6.  Logon to /console with the new administrative user - "weblogic1/webl0gic1" (not "weblogic")

7.  Now either use this as admin user or you can reset password of earlier user weblogic.
