A Starting and Stopping Servers: Quick Reference

The following sections describe simple, frequently used ways to start and shut down instances of WebLogic Server:

For a comprehensive discussion of starting and shutting down WebLogic Server instances, see Chapter 2, "Starting and Stopping Servers".

Starting Instances of WebLogic Server

In the following table, WL_HOME refers to the top-level installation directory for WebLogic Server, such as c:\Oracle\Middleware\wlserver_12.1\.

Table A-1 Starting Server Instances

To Start Do The Following

The MedRec server

Invoke:

WL_HOME\samples\domains\medrec\bin\startWebLogic.cmd (Windows)

WL_HOME/samples/domains/medrec/bin/startWebLogic.sh (UNIX)

The server starts as an Administration Server in the medrec domain.

On Windows, you can start the Medical Records Server from the Start menu (WebLogic Server > Examples > Start Medical Records Server). By default, the user name for the medrec domain is set to weblogic and the password is welcome1.

The MedRec server (Spring version)

Invoke:

WL_HOME\samples\domains\medrec-spring\bin\startWebLogic.cmd (Windows)

WL_HOME/samples/domains/medrec-spring/bin/startWebLogic.sh (UNIX)

The server starts as an Administration Server in the medrec-spring domain.

On Windows, you can start the Medical Records Server (Spring version) from the Start menu (WebLogic Server > Examples > Start Medical Records Server (Spring version)). By default, the user name for the medrec domain is set to weblogic and the password is welcome1.

The Examples server

Invoke:

WL_HOME\samples\domains\wl_server\bin\startWebLogic.cmd (Windows)

WL_HOME/samples/domains/wl_server/bin/startWebLogic.sh (UNIX)

The server starts as an Administration Server in the wl_server domain.

On Windows, you can start the Examples Server from the Start menu (WebLogic Server > Examples > Start Examples Server). By default, the user name for the wl_server domain is set to weblogic and the password is welcome1.

An Administration Server that you have created

Invoke:

DOMAIN_NAME\bin\startWebLogic.cmd (Windows)

DOMAIN_NAME/bin/startWebLogic.sh (UNIX)

where DOMAIN_NAME is the name of the directory in which you located the domain, typically MW_HOME\user_projects\domains\DOMAIN_NAME.

If the server prompts you to enter a user name and password, enter the name of a WebLogic Server user who has permission to start servers. For more information, see Provide User Credentials to Start and Stop Servers.

NOTE: In a development environment, it is usually sufficient to start an Administration Server and deploy your applications directly on the Administration Server. In a production environment, you typically create Managed Servers to run applications.

On Windows, the Configuration Wizard creates a shortcut on the Start menu to start the Administration Server that you created (User Projects > DOMAIN_NAME > Start Admin Server for WebLogic Domain ).

Managed Servers

  1. Start the domain's Administration Server.

  2. Start the Node Manager on the computer that will host the Managed Server you want to start.

    The WebLogic Server custom installation process optionally installs and starts Node Manager as a Windows service on Windows systems.

    If it's not already running, you can start Node Manager manually at a command prompt or with a script. See "Starting Node Manager" in the Node Manager Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebLogic Server.

    On Windows, you can use a shortcut on the Start menu to start the Node Manager (WebLogic Server > Tools > Node Manager).

    See "Starting the Administration Console" in Understanding Oracle WebLogic Server.

  3. Start the domain's Administration Console.

  4. Associate Managed Servers with Node Manager by assigning them to a Machine upon which Node Manager runs.

    See "Create and configure machines" and "Assign servers instances to machines" in the Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console Help.

  5. In the left pane of the Administration Console, expand Environment and select Servers.

  6. In the right pane, select the Control tab.

  7. In the Server Status table, select the check box next to the name of the server you want to start and click Start.

  8. Click Yes to confirm.

For information on additional ways to start Managed Servers, see Chapter 2, "Starting and Stopping Servers".

A cluster of Managed Servers

To start clustered Managed Servers with Node Manager, see "Start Managed Servers in a cluster" in the Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console Help.


Shutting Down Instances of WebLogic Server

It is recommended that you shutdown WebLogic Server instances through the Administration Console:

Alternatively, invoke a WebLogic Server stop script to shutdown the server. See Shutting Down Servers with a Stop Script.

On Windows, you can stop the Medical Records Server, Medical Records Server (Spring version), Examples Server, and Administration Servers that you have created using the Configuration Wizard, from the Start menu.
