tadm create-config common_options [--server-user=user_id] 
[--ip=ip] --server-name=server_name  [--origin-server-type=http|https|tcp] --listener-port=port --origin-server=host:port[,host:port,..] config_name


Use this command to create a new configuration that listens to HTTP and TCP traffic on a given port and front-ends a set of HTTP and TCP origin servers. By using this command, you can create a default virtual server that handles HTTP traffic and a default tcp proxy that handles TCP traffic. In addition, it creates a default route and forwards all traffic to the origin server.


For information about common_options, run the help command.


Specify the user ID of a server user, for example, root. This option is mandatory if the administration server is on UNIX.

Specify the listener port details for creating the configuration.


Specify the type of requests handled by the origin servers.


Specify the host name of the server.


Specify the comma separated list of origin servers of the format host:port. If the origin server is specified and the origin server port is 80, the port need not be specified. For example: and


The property origin-server enables you to specify multiple values, with each value enclosed in quotes and separated by commas.
