One of the labs in our Weblogic Advanced Administration 12c course is about using domain templates. When revising the particular lab, we created a domain in Weblogic 12c and then created a template based on the domain. On recreation of the domain based on the template we get an exception:
This we get regardless of if we provide nodemanager details at the initial creation of the domain. We did some investigation and found for instance this forum, that gave a hint, but not a solution or workaround.
One important hint is the message ‘config-nodemanager.xml: failed to parse the template!(/home/rcma/rcma_domain_template.jar): Parsing the config-nodemanager.xml failed!’. So it relates to the nodemanager configuration and the contents of the config-nodemanager.xml file in the template.
By the way, my colleague found that the same issue can also be experienced during pack and unpack, as desribed in Oracle support note 2311027.1. Here you can find that the problem in the config-nodemanager.xml is about the password. If you have a nodemanager password set in the domain’s config.xml, it is encrypted with the domain’s seed/salt. It can’t be decrypted and read by the domain configurator or unpack tools, because they don’t have the salt of the source domain.
So, what is the work-around or solution? I see two: Read the complete article here.
