BEA-000362 Server failed. Reason: Parsing Failure in config.xml: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException

Invicti Web Application Security Scanner – the only solution that delivers automatic verification of vulnerabilities with Proof-Based Scanning™.

A few days back I encountered the following error and WebLogic failed to start with BEA-00362 Critical Error

Are you also having the same error?


This happens when MW_HOME is not defined and weblogic.jar is getting called twice in CLASSPATH.

To fix this, check below two points.

  • Ensure weblogic.jar in CLASSPATH is not duplicated. You can check CLASSPATH section when it prints while starting.
  • Set MW_HOME either on Unix shell or in startup scripts.

Start Oracle WebLogic now, it should work!
