2. Create a file Paste the following code within it and give the file permission to 755 (chmod 755

import os
import def
decrypt(domainHomeName, encryptedPwd):
 domainHomeAbsolutePath = os.path.abspath(domainHomeName)
 encryptionService =
 ces =
 clear = ces.decrypt(encryptedPwd)
 print “RESULT:” + clear try:
 if len(sys.argv) == 3:
 decrypt(sys.argv[1], sys.argv[2])
 print ” Usage: java weblogic.WLST DOMAIN_HOME  ENCRYPTED_PASSWORD”
 print ” Example:”
 print ” java weblogic.WLST  D:/bea/user_projects/domains/base_domain {3DES}xL/RisZRlxBfjr1jlX5Oeg==”
 print “Unexpected error: “, sys.exc_info()[0]

3. Create another file decrypt_password

4. Put the below code there:

printf ‘\e[1;32;22m Please Enter Encrypted Password : \e[m\n’
echo ” “
read decrypted_password
. ${WL_HOME}/server/bin/
${WL_HOME}/common/bin/ /bea/user_projects/domains/base_domain $encrypted_password

5. Give permission to decrypt_password as 755.

6. Also copy the SerializedSystemIni.dat file from $WEBLOGIC_DOMAIN/security to the config directory.

7. BINGO!!!Now you have loaded your gun to shoot. Run decrypt_password script and give the encrypted password it to feed. You will get the original password:
