where domain_directory is the directory in which you created the domain.
If the server prompts you to enter a username and password, enter the name of a WebLogic Server user who has permission to start servers. For more information, refer to "Providing Usernames and Passwords to Start a Server" in the Administration Console Online Help.
Note: In a development environment, it is usually sufficient to start an Administration Server and deploy your applications directly onto the Administration Server. In a production environment, you typically create Managed Servers to run applications.
On Windows, you can instruct the Domain Configuration Wizard to create a shortcut on the Start menu to start the server that you create. You can also instruct the wizard to install the server as a Windows service. If you do so, the server starts automatically when you boot the host machine.
A Managed Server that you have created
Start the domain's Administration Server. (If you have configured the server as a Windows service, it starts automatically when you boot the Windows host computer.)
Start the Node Manager on the computer that will host the Managed Server you want to start. (If you have configured the Node Manager as a Windows service, it starts automatically when you boot the Windows host computer.) For more information, refer to Starting and Stopping Node Manager.
