Before you begin
Ensure that you have created a machine and that you have installed and configured Node Manager on each physical machine that contains a WebLogic Server instance. For more information on creating a machine, see Create and configure machines. For information on installing and configuring Node Manager, see Using Node Manager to Control Servers.
Node Manager is program that is used to control WebLogic Server instances. A single Node Manager instance is used to control all of the server instances running on the same physical machine. These instances can reside in different clusters, domains, etc. You must configure each machine in your domain to communicate with Node Manager.
For general information on Node Manager, see Using Node Manager to Control Servers.
For more information on different Node Manager types, see "Using Node Manager to Control Servers".
Note: The values you provide here must correspond to the values used when you configured the Node Manager instance.
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 Configuring Script-based Node Manager.
