Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v2.1.1 Administration Guide

Admin Console

The Admin Console is a browser-based tool that features an easy-to-navigate interface and online help. The administration server (also called the Domain Administration Server or DAS) must be running to use the Admin Console. To, launch the Administration Console, you must know the administration server hostname and port number. When the Enterprise Server was installed, you chose a port number for the server, or used the default port of 4848. You also specified a user name and master password.

To start the Admin Console, in a web browser type:


For example:

If the Admin Console is running on the machine on which the Enterprise Server was installed, specify localhost for the host name.

On Windows, start the Enterprise Server Admin Console from the Start menu.

The installation program creates the default administrative domain (named domain1) with the default port number 4848, as well as an instance separate from the domain administration server (DAS). After installation, additional administration domains can be created. Each domain has its own domain administration server, which has a unique port number. When specifying the URL for the Admin Console, be sure to use the port number for the domain to be administered.

If your configuration includes remote server instances, create node agents to manage and facilitate remote server instances. It is the responsibility of the node agent to create, start, stop, and delete a server instance. Use the command line interface (CLI) commands to set up node agents.
