2.1 Creating the Administration Server

The Oracle Traffic Director administration server provides the interfaces that you can use to perform all of the administrative tasks for Oracle Traffic Director.

To create the administration server, do the following:

  1. Run the configure-server CLI command as shown in the following example:

    > $ORACLE_HOME/bin/tadm configure-server --port=8989 --user=admin

    ORACLE_HOME is the directory in which you installed Oracle Traffic Director.


    The user name can contain a maximum of 100 characters and must not contain spaces.

    The following message and prompt are displayed.

    This command will create the administration server.
    The password that is provided will be required to access the administration server.
    Enter admin-user-password>
  2. Enter the administrator password.

    You will later use this password to log in to the Oracle Traffic Director administration console.

    A prompt to enter the password again is displayed.

    Enter admin-user-password again>
  3. Confirm the administrator password by entering it again.

The files and resources pertaining to the administration server (configuration artifacts, executable commands, and so on) are located in the admin-server subdirectory within the instance-home directory specified with the configure-server command.

For each of the Oracle Traffic Director configurations that you subsequently instantiate on the host that contains the administration server, a directory named net-config_name is created within the instance-home directory, as shown in the following example:


For more information about the configure-server command, see the Oracle Traffic Director Command-Line Reference or run the command with the --help option.
