Known Issues

Doing a Complete Install With a Generic Installer

If you are performing a complete install of a WebLogic product (e.g. WebLogic Server, WebLogic Portal) by using the generic installer (.jar) on a platform where Eclipse is not supported or not installed, you might encounter a situation where the generic installer will go into a repeated loop condition. If you are experiencing this condition refer to the Installation Guide, specifically the "Install Eclipse Location Options" section for more information on how to handle the installation.

Serial Version UID Mismatch

A Serial Version UID Mismatch Issue may be encountered if you deploy an application on a latest JVM, but compiled with an earlier JDK release.

Workaround: To be compatible with the serialization of previously compiled applications, modify the <BEA_HOME>/wlserver_10.3/common/bin/ file to include the following command:

JAVA_OPTIONS="$JAVA_OPTIONS -Dcom.sun.xml.namespace.QName.useCompatibleSerialVersionUID=1.0"

Alternatively, you can use the command line option:

export JAVA_OPTIONS="$JAVA_OPTIONS -Dcom.sun.xml.namespace.QName.useCompatibleSerialVersionUID=1.0"

Note: If you intend to deploy new applications with previously compiled applications, they must be recompiled as necessary to have the same Serial Version UID.

Increase MaxPermSize

You may need to increase the MaxPermSize parameter based on application requirements. For example: For the WebLogic Portal Dynamic Visitor Tools sample, you may need to increase the MaxPermSize from 128MB to 256MB.

Working with Large Objects via RMI over IIOP

If your application involves working with very large objects via RMI over IIOP, you might encounter the following exception:

java.rmi.MarshalException: ; nested exception is: org.omg.CORBA.MARSHAL: vmcid: 0x0 minor code: 0 completed: 

Workaround: Increase the size of the JVM thread stack using the -Xss option on the command line. By default, the stack is set to 512 KB; modify it depending on the size of the object in question.

Unable to Start WebLogic Server While Logged in as root

If you start or install WebLogic Server while logged in as root, while using the JDK, the server may fail to start and throw a If this happens, complete the following procedure:

    1. In a text editor, open the file in the directory JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security, where JAVA_HOME represents your JDK installation directory.
    2. Find the securerandom.source=file:/dev/urandom entry. Change it to:
    3. securerandom.source=file:/dev/random
    4. Save the file with your changes and close it.
    5. While still logged in as root, restart WebLogic Server.
