Use online deployment if you already know the domain topology and have the hardware for your domain.
The following figure summarizes the online deployment of node agents:
Install and start the Domain Administration Server. Once the Domain Administration Server is up and running, begin either online or offline deployment.
Install a node agent on every machine that will host a server instance.
Use the installer or the asadmin create-node-agent command . If a machine requires more than one node agent, use the asadmin create-node-agent command to create them.
See Creating a Node Agent for more information.
Start the node agents using the asadmin start-node-agent command .
When started, a node agent communicates with the Domain Administration Server (DAS). When it reaches the DAS, a configuration for the node agent is created on the DAS. Once the configuration exists, the node agent is viewable in the Admin Console.
See Starting a Node Agent for more information.
Configure the domain: create server instances, create clusters, and deploying applications.
