1. Weblogic take the classpath from internally makes a call to the above script. So it is highly advisable if you could change your CLASSPATH and PRE_CLASSPATH (if you would like some classes to be loaded before everything) setting in

2. Node always gets the configuration settings from admin server. That is the reason, you start it like <nodename> <adminserver:port>

When starting the node, it contacts the admin server and fetches the config.xml from the server.

Other crude option is to directly set it in which is as well called by

Both should work
