Creating WebLogic Configurations Using the Configuration Wizard
When run in graphical mode, the Configuration Wizard is executed in a graphics environment. The console for the machine on which you install WebLogic Platform must support a Java-based GUI. All Windows-based consoles support Java-based GUIs; only a subset of UNIX-based consoles support Java-based GUIs.
Note: You can also start the Configuration Wizard in graphical mode using the QuickStart application. QuickStart is presented, by default, following an installation of the product software. To launch the Configuration Wizard from QuickStart, select Create a new domain configuration, or extend an existing one.
To finish creating your domain, respond to the prompts in each section by entering the number associated with your choice, pressing Enter, or typing
n) to accept the current selection. The arrow (
Exit in response to any prompt. To review or change your selection, enter
Previous at the prompt.
Silent-mode configuration enables you to define the configuration information for a domain once and then duplicate that domain on multiple machines. In silent mode, the Configuration Wizard reads configuration settings from a script that you manually create prior to execution.
Before you can run the Configuration Wizard in silent mode, you must first create a script in which you define the settings usually entered manually by a user during graphical mode or console mode configuration. When running in silent mode, the Configuration Wizard queries the specified configuration script to obtain the configuration settings it needs. It does not prompt you to provide information in real time. For more information, see Creating a Script for Silent-Mode Configuration.
config.cmd -mode=silent [-silent_script=
sh config.sh -mode=silent [-silent_script=
scriptfilespecifies the full or relative path of the configuration script. You can specify multiple scripts, separated by a comma (
,), or a semi-colon (
;). White space between filenames is not allowed. The
-silent_scriptargument is optional. If you specify multiple scripts and one of them is not found, an error message indicating the name of the script not found is generated. If no script file is specified, by default, the Configuration Wizard searches the
common\libsubdirectory of the product installation directory for the file
logfilespecifies the full or relative path of the log file. The
-logargument is optional. If the argument is not specified, no log file is generated. If a pathname is not specified, the Configuration Wizard stores the log file within the
common\libsubdirectory of the product installation directory.
