To create and configure machines:
The Machines table displays in the right pane showing all the machines defined in the domain.
This name is used to identify the machine within the WebLogic Server domain. This name does not have to correspond to the machine's network name.
The new machine is displayed in the Machines table.
The user ID that you enter must have read, write, and execute privileges within the BEA Home directory, the WebLogic Server product directory tree, and your domain directory.
The default value of the Post-Bind UID field, nobody, is a standard UNIX account that provides the least possible privileges. While the nobody account is acceptable for use in a development environment, in a production environment, Oracle recommends that you create an operating-system user account specifically for running instances of WebLogic Server. See "Securing the WebLogic Server Host."
For more information on Node Manager types, see Node Manager Administrator's Guide.
If you identify the Listen Address by IP address, you must disable Host Name Verification on Administration Servers that will access Node Manager. For more information and instructions, see "Using Hostname Verification" in Managing WebLogic Security.
For more information on configuring Node Manager using SSH or RSH, see Node Manager Administrator's Guide.
The new machine entry now specifies the attributes required to connect to the Node Manager process running on the machine, as well as identify which WebLogic Server instances reside on the machine. For information on assiging servers to a machine, see Assign server instances to machines.
