Solution:

If you are using “weblogic.system.BootIdentityFile” JVM argument to describe your boot.properties file location,
please make sure the boot.properties file doesn’t present at the default location.

If it is, remove the file from the default location and restart your WL AdminServer to apply the fix.

“${DOMAIN_HOME}/server/${ADMIN_SERVER_NAME}/security/boot.properties”

Because, WLSDM gives priority the default location and the exception says “Authentication Failed: User specified user denied”.
