It is easy to make a mistake when configuring a new security realm or security providers. A mistake may make it impossible to boot the server to correct the mistake. Reverting the configuration XML files will reinstate a previous realm configuration.
By default, the Administration Server archives up to 5 previous
versions of the configuration files in the
domain-name/configArchive directory, in JAR
config.jar#2, etc. The archived files are rotated so
that the newest file has a suffix with the highest number. For more
information, see Understanding Domain Configuration.
To revert to a previous security configuration:
config.jarfile that contains the security configuration to which you want to revert, copy it to a temporary directory, and unpack it.
domain-name/configdirectory. For information about which directories hold which configuration files, see Domain Configuration Files.
After you finish
Restart WebLogic Server so that your changes can take effect.
Note: Note this process will only revert your security realm (meaning, the configuration of the realm and its providers) not users, groups, roles, or security policies used by the realm, which are persisted in a data store and not in the configuration files. For information about backing up information that is persisted in a data store, see Export data from a security provider
