Creating a Server Instance

Before creating a new server instance, perform the following checks:

  1. Check whether you have created a configuration. Creating a new server instance requires an existing instance configuration to be specified.

  2. Check if all the available nodes in the Server Farm already have an instance of the required configuration. You can not create duplicate instances.

Create a new server instance by performing the following tasks:

  1. Click the Configuration tab and click the configuration link that you want to create an instance.

  2. In the New Instance Wizard page, select the configuration for which you need to create an instance. Select the SMF Service if you want to create a service for this instance and click the Next button.

  3. Select the nodes on which instances of the selected configuration [Step 2] should exist. Click the Next button.

  4. View the summary of your selection. Click the Next button to view the result of the operation.

Note –

wadm> create-instance --user=admin --password-file=admin.pwd 
--host=serverhost --port=8989 --config=config1 serverhost
