Before you begin
A Managed Server is a WebLogic Server instance that runs deployed applications. It refers to the Administration Server for all of its configuration and deployment information. Usually, you use Managed Servers to run applications in a production environment. For more information about Managed Servers and Administration Servers, see Understanding WebLogic Server Domains.
To view messages that the Node Manager generated while starting the server, see View Remote Start Output. These messages are also written to the Node Manager log file for that server, as described in Node Manager Log and Configuration Files.
