Use the start-node-agent command start a node agent. This command may take a while to execute since the node agent may need to create and start a number of server instances.
This command is supported in local mode only.
The authorized domain administration server administrative username.
The ––password option is deprecated. Use ––passwordfile instead.
This option replaces the –– password option. Using the ––password option on the command line or through the environment is deprecated. The ––passwordfile option specifies the name of a file containing the password entries in a specified format. The entry for the password must have the AS_ADMIN_ prefix followed by the password name in capital 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, AS_ADMIN_SAVEDMASTERPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_MQPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_ALIASPASSWORD, and so on.
If set to true, uses SSL/TLS to communicate with the domain administration server.
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 the standard output. Default is false.
If set to true (default), only the required password options are prompted.
By default this flag is set to false. If set to true, a console window is opened for the node agent and for every server instance a node agent manages. On Windows, press Ctrl-Break in the console to print a thread dump. On UNIX, press CTRL-Backslash in the console to print a thread dump. The node agent thread dump goes to its console. The server instance thread dump goes to the instance log file.
Like a Domain Administration Server (DAS), each node agent resides in a top level directory named agentdir/nodeagent_name. If specified, the path must be accessible in the filesystem. If not specified, the node agent is created in the default install_dir/nodeagents directory.
If set to true, all server instances that are not currently running are started. If set to false, instances are not started. If the option is omitted, it defaults to the value of the node agent's start-servers-in-startup attribute, located in the domain.xml.
The following example starts a nodeagent nodeagent1 in the default install_dir/nodeagents directory.
asadmin>start-node-agent --user admin --passwordfile /home/password.txt nodeagent1 Command start-node-agent executed successfully.
