Changing weblogic password in OBIEE environment

If you want to change the weblogic password in an OBIEE environment you have to be very careful so that both the Weblogic and Managed Server are running when you change the password. If only the Weblogic is started when you change the password then the Managed Server won’t start with any password (old or new). The error it throws is:

<BEA-090403> <Authentication for user weblogic denied>
<BEA-000386> <Server subsystem failed. Reason: weblogic.security.SecurityInitializationException: Authentication for user weblogic denied
   weblogic.security.SecurityInitializationException: Authentication for user weblogic denied
   at weblogic.security.service.CommonSecurityServiceManagerDelegateImpl.doBootAuthorization(CommonSecurityServiceManagerDelegateImpl.java:965)
   at weblogic.security.service.CommonSecurityServiceManagerDelegateImpl.initialize(CommonSecurityServiceManagerDelegateImpl.java:1050)

   at weblogic.work.ExecuteThread.execute(ExecuteThread.java:209)
   at weblogic.work.ExecuteThread.run(ExecuteThread.java:178)

It took me a while to figure this out, maybe it will save somebody some debugging time.
