enable command enables the specified component. If the component is already enabled, then it is re-enabled. The component must have been deployed in order to be enabled. If it has not been deployed, then an error message is returned. This command is supported in remote mode only.


u user

The authorized domain application server administrative username.

w password

The password option is deprecated. Use passwordfile instead.


This option replaces the password option. Using the password option on the command line or through the environment is deprecated. The passwordfile option specifies the name of a file containing the password entries in a specified format. The entry for the password must have the AS_ADMIN_ prefix followed by the password name in capital letters. For example, to specify the domain application server password, use an entry with the following format: AS_ADMIN_PASSWORD=password, where password is the actual administrator password. Other passwords that can be specified include AS_ADMIN_MAPPEDPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_USERPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_SAVEDMASTERPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_MQPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_ALIASPASSWORD, and so on.

H host

s secure

t terse

Indicates that any output data must be very concise, typically avoiding human-friendly sentences and favoring well-formatted data for consumption by a script. Default is false.

Setting to true will echo the command line statement on the standard output. Default is false.

I interactive

If set to true (default), only the required password options are prompted.
