Stopping WebLogic

You can stop Weblogic using:

Stopping WebLogic Using the Administration Console

To stop the PeopleSoft server:

  1. In the left pane of the console, expand Environment, and select Servers.

  2. In the Summary of Servers table, click the name of the server that you want to shut down.

  3. Select the Control tab, and then the Start/Stop tab.

  4. From the Shutdown drop-down menu, select one of the following options:

    • When work completes: This command initiates a graceful shutdown, which gives WebLogic Server subsystems time to complete application processing currently in progress.

    • Force Shutdown now: This command initiates a forced shutdown, in which the server instructs subsystems to immediately drop current requests.

  5. Click Yes to confirm and shut down the server.

    Note: If you shut down the Administration Server, the Administration Console is no longer active.

To stop WebLogic using the command line, enter the appropriate command.
