    look at /etc/passwd and /etc/groups. See what ID he has and what groups he belongs to. That will give you a first idea. However it really depends on the applications on your system. They might have different authentication and/or authorization systems. So, without further specification, it's hard to tell you anything.

    Accepted Solution

    That should be easy.

    $ cd /
    $ find . -user "weblogic" -print

    That will show everything belong to the user "weblogic"  on your system.
