Xelsysadm – password not working?

After our lovely install on WebLogic, we found that the password that was set for xelsysadm wasn’t functioning. Could it have been the fact that there were special characters in the password during the installation such as “$” or “*”?

At any rate, the reset process is pretty simple, provided that you have a base install and haven’t changed the password for XLOPERATOR.

The procedure is as follows:
1. Open the file OIM_HOMExellerateconfigxlconfig.xml
2. Look for the encrypted password for XLOPERATOR
3. Take this value and insert it directly into the database for xelsysadm

Et Voila. You should be able to login using the default password for XLOPERATOR.

I know there are a whole bunch of alternative solutions – post em here!
