The subcommand identifies the operation or task that you are performing. Subcommands are case-sensitive. Each subcommand is either a local subcommand or a remote subcommand.
A local subcommand can be run without a running domain administration server (DAS). However, to run the subcommand and have access to the installation directory and the domain directory, the user must be logged in to the machine that hosts the domain.
A remote subcommand is always run by connecting to a DAS and running the subcommand there. A running DAS is required.
For a list of the subcommands for this release of GlassFish Server, see Section 1 of Oracle GlassFish Server 3.0.1 Reference Manual.
