The following property change can be applied to the server config.sh, but I prefer to apply it within WebLogic Console due to ease of management.

1. Log into WebLogic Console.
2. Click Servers.
3. Click on the server to apply to property to.
4. Under the Configuration tab, click on the Server Start tab.
5. In the Arguments input box, enter the following argument:–
6. Shut down and restart the same server.
