The HADB management client is a command-line utility, hadbm, for managing the HADB domain and its database instances. HADB services can run continously— even when the associated Application Server cluster is stopped—but must be shut down carefully if they are to be deleted. For more information on using hadbm, see Chapter 11, Administering High Availability Database, in Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server 2.1 High Availability Administration Guide.
You can use the asadmin command line utility to create and delete the HADB instance associated with a highly available cluster. For more information, see Chapter 7, Configuring High Availability Session Persistence and Failover, in Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server 2.1 High Availability Administration Guide.
