There can be two causes of this error, which is the Weblogic error may be still running, or it was incorrectly closed. Due to this server creates a lock file which should be deleted during the shutdown process.

The possible solution can be to ensure that the Java process that is associated with Weblogic Server has finished. You have to go to Task Manager and kill the running Weblogic Server instance. You will be able to find the right process by filtering the java processes.

Delete <ServerName>.lok file:

A. For Jdeveloper integrated weblogic server:


B. For standalone weblogic server:
