1. No need to remove the boot.properties file.
Just edit the file, use plain text username and password instead of encrypted like
Username: weblogic
password: Weblogic1
After start the server from command line, it will encrypt again automitically.

2. remove the ManagedServerDir/data/ldap directory completely.

3: Always keep backup of files before removing it.

One other thing before you start deleteing files. If you have more than one domain on your network make sure that you have used a unique cluster multicast address otherwise things will get confused!

Thanks a lot for your valuable comments.
