Before you begin
You can start a server
instance so that at the end of its startup cycle, the server is in the
ADMIN state. In this
state, WebLogic Server is up and running, but available only for
administration operations, allowing you to perform server and
application-level administration tasks without risk to running
applications. For more information, see ADMIN
State. For command information, see Start in
For information on how the server transitions from
SHUTDOWN state, see Understanding
Server Life Cycle.
After you finish
When you are ready for the server to receive other types of requests, you resume it as described in Resume a server.
