OEM12c Password Change for SYSMAN and Weblogic Administration Accounts

password_reset.jpgHaving recently created an OEM12c virtual box install for a proof of concept (POC) at a customer site, another opportunity arose to reuse the same virtual machine. Alas the SYSMAN and WEBLOGIC administration passwords were unknown and required to be reset before reuse. Initially it was considered that this would be an easy task and it referenced some Oracle metalink published notes to complete the operation. However these notes and other published material were found to be missing some of the more critical steps, they were found to be lacking also in clarity and detail leading to a complex and error prone process that had to be retried many times. The purpose of this document is to give a clear step by step process to an administrator in a similar position that covers all the steps and not just some of the steps in detail with examples to follow.
