2 Overview of System Administration Tasks

This chapter provides an overview of the tasks needed to manage core features of Oracle WebCenter Content in a Content Server instance, such as system monitoring, configuration, security, and archiving.

For details about managing other features of Oracle WebCenter Content, including Repository Manager, Records, Imaging, Conversion, and Desktop, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Managing Oracle WebCenter Content.

This chapter includes the following topics:

2.1 Basic Administration Tasks

WebCenter Content administrators perform several basic tasks to manage a Content Server instance. By default, a WebCenter Content administrator must be a user assigned the Admin role in Oracle WebLogic Server and also assigned the Admin role in WebCenter Content.

Section 3.4 describes how to access the Content Server home page using the Fusion Middleware Control interface. Fusion Middleware Control can be used to start and stop Content Server instances, configure common system settings, manage system components, monitor system logs and status and performance.

Section 3.5 describes how to access a Content Server portal using a web browser. The portal Administration tray (or menu) and the Admin Server can be used to start and stop Content Server instances, configure common system settings, configure index and search settings, manage system components, monitor system logs and status and performance, manage batch loading, manage file systems, and manage archives.

Section 4.2 describes how to start and stop Content Server instances using Fusion Middleware Control.

Section 4.3 describes how to start and stop Content Server instances using the WebLogic Server Administration Console.

Section 4.4 describes how to start and stop Content Server instances using scripts on the WebLogic Server Managed Server.

Section 4.5 describes how to run Content Server administration applications either as applets or in standalone mode. Administration applications include Archiver, Batch Loader, Component Wizard, Content Server Analyzer, System Properties, and User Admin.

Section 4.6 describes how to use the IdcShell tool in order to set configuration variables and environment variables by running Idoc Script from a command line.

Chapter 5 provides information on how to use the Batch Loader utility to check in (insert), delete, and update a large number of files simultaneously on a Content Server instance.

Chapter 6 provides information on sources of information and how to use them to monitor a Content Server instance.

2.2 Monitoring Tasks

Several tools are available to monitor Content Server status and performance.

Section 6.1 describes how to view the current status of a Content Server instance.

Section 6.2 describes how to view Java output from a Content Server instance.

Section 6.3 describes how to access the Configuration Information page and discusses the configuration details provided about a Content Server instance.

Section 6.4 describes how to access the System Audit Information page and discusses the system information it provides about general status, localization, tracing, cache, configuration entries, and components.

Section 6.5 explains how to view scheduled jobs which are run as part of events scheduled by system components. Viewing options include active scheduled jobs, scheduled jobs history, and scheduled jobs details.

Section 7.3 explains Content Server logs and describes how to access them.

Section 7.4 explains Content Archiver logs and describes how to access them.

Section 7.5 explains Inbound Refinery logs and describes how to access them.

Chapter 8 describes how to use Fusion Middleware Control to view log information, performance information (including metrics and recent service requests), and MBean attribute information.

2.3 Configuration Tasks

WebCenter Content configuration covers a range of tasks from configuring Content Server and Internet settings, to components, to search tools and the search index, to providers, to the file store system, and security.

Configuration tasks for WebCenter Content features such as Inbound Refinery, Dynamic Converter, Records, Repository, and so forth are covered in Oracle Fusion Middleware Managing Oracle WebCenter Content.

This section covers the following topics:

Section 9.7 describes how to use Content Server to configure server properties.

Section 9.8 describes how to use Content Server to configure localization properties.

Section 9.9 describes how to use Content Server to change the specified location of the help browser, Java classpath, and the shared directory path.

2.3.2 Components

This section provides links to information on configuring Content Server components.

Section 10.1 introduces Content Server components, which provide additional features or to modify existing functionality. It provides a table of standard system components with brief descriptions of their functions.

Section 10.2 describes how to manage components using the Admin Server, including instructions for enabling or disabling a component, installing or uninstalling a component, downloading a component, and modifying a component configuration.

Section 10.3 provides information on the process and steps in using the Component Wizard to create a custom component for Content Server.
