start-appserv [--terse=false] [--echo=false] [--interactive=true] [--user admin_user] [--passwordfile passwordfile] [--domaindir install_dir/domains]
This command is deprecated. Use the start-domain command instead. Use the start-appserv command to start the domains in specified domain directory. If the domain directory is not specified the domains in the default install_dir/domains directory are started. The start-appserv command requires that the user has set up an AS_ADMIN_USER environment variable and that all domains have the same administration user. You are prompted for the master password for each domain (unless the --savemasterpassword option was specified at the domain creation time).
The start-appserv command functions correctly if every domain is created with --savemasterpassword. If --savemasterpassword is not specified, then you are prompted for the master password for every domain.
This command is supported in local mode only.
The directory where the domains are to be started. If specified, the path must be accessible in the filesystem. If not specified, the domain in the default install_dir/domains directory is started.
Indicates that any output data must be very concise, typically avoiding human-friendly sentences and favoring well-formatted data for consumption by a script. Default is false.
Setting to true will echo the command line statement on to the standard output. Default is false.
If set to true (default), only the required password options are prompted.
The authorized domain administration server administrative username.
If you have authenticated to a domain using the asadmin login command, then you need not specify the --user option on subsequent operations to this particular domain.
The --passwordfile option specifies the name of a file containing the password entries in a specific format. The entry for the password must have the AS_ADMIN_ prefix followed by the password name in uppercase letters.
For example, to specify the domain administration server password, use an entry with the following format: AS_ADMIN_PASSWORD=password, where password is the actual administrator password. Other passwords that can be specified include AS_ADMIN_MAPPEDPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_USERPASSWORD, and AS_ADMIN_ALIASPASSWORD.
All remote commands must specify the admin password to authenticate to the domain administration server, either through --passwordfile or asadmin login, or interactively on the command prompt. The asadmin login command can be used only to specify the admin password. For other passwords, that must be specified for remote commands, use the --passwordfile or enter them at the command prompt.
If you have authenticated to a domain using the asadmin login command, then you need not specify the admin password through the --passwordfile option on subsequent operations to this particular domain. However, this is applicable only to AS_ADMIN_PASSWORD option. You will still need to provide the other passwords, for example, AS_ADMIN_USERPASSWORD, as and when required by individual commands, such as update-file-user.
For security reasons, passwords specified as an environment variable will not be read by asadmin.
