Starting the Domain

To start a domain, type the asadmin start-domain command and specify the domain name. For example, to start the default domain (domain1), type the following:

$ asadmin start-domain --user admin domain1

For the full command syntax, type asadmin help start-domain. If the password data is omitted, you are prompted to supply it.

On Windows, to start the default domain:

From the Windows Start Menu, select Programs -> Sun Microsystems -> Application Server -> Start Admin Server.
