The configuration process for the Registry starts the Application Server domain in which the registry is deployed. After you perform certain administrative tasks, you need to stop and restart the domain. Examples of such tasks are Configuring the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) for the Registry Domain and Creating an Administrator.
The Admin Console informs you if you need to restart the domain. You can use the Admin Console to perform this task. If you are using the asadmin command, you can use Ant tasks to stop and start the domain.
Change to the Service Registry install directory.
Run the following command (all on one line):
Ant-base/ant -f build-install.xml -Dinstall.properties=props-file appserver.domain.bounce
where props-file is the path name of the copy of install.properties file that you edited in To Configure Service Registry as Root Using Custom Properties After a Configure Later Installation or To Configure Service Registry as a Non-Root User Using Custom Properties After a Configure Later Installation.
The appserver.domain.bounce target stops the domain and then restarts it.
The build-install.xml file also contains separate Ant targets for stopping and starting the Registry domain. To stop the domain, use the Ant target appserver.domain.stop. To start the domain, use the Ant target appserver.domain.start.
