2 Accessing the Administration Tools

You can use several administration tools to secure and administer Fusion Middleware Web Services. The following sections describe how to access the security and administration tools.

2.1 Accessing Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control

To access Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control:

  1. Start the Oracle WebLogic Server instance.

    For more information, see "Start and stop servers" in the Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console Online Help.

  2. Open a supported Web browser and navigate to the following URL:

    http://hostname:port/em
    https://hostname:port/em
    

    hostname specifies the DNS name or IP address of Fusion Middleware Control and port specifies the address of the port on which Fusion Middleware Control is listening for requests (7001 by default).

    Use https if you started the Oracle Fusion Middleware using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

    For a list of supported browsers, see Oracle Fusion Middleware System Requirements and Specifications at: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/ias/downloads/fusion-requirements-100147.html

    The Login page displays.

  3. Enter the username and password.

    The default user name for the administrator user is weblogic. This is the account you can use to log in to Fusion Middleware Control for the first time. The password is the one you supplied during the installation of Oracle Fusion Middleware.

  4. Click Login.

For more information, see "Getting Started Using Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control" in Administering Oracle Fusion Middleware.

2.2 Accessing Oracle WebLogic Administration Console

To access Oracle WebLogic Administration Console:

  1. Start the Oracle WebLogic Server.

    For more information, see "Start and stop servers" in the Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console Online Help.

  2. Open a supported Web browser and navigate to one of the following URLs:

    http://hostname:port/console
    https://hostname:port/console
    

    hostname specifies the DNS name or IP address of the Oracle WebLogic Administration Server and port specifies the address of the port on which the Oracle WebLogic Administration Server is listening for requests (7001 by default).

    Use https if you started the Oracle WebLogic Server using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

    For a list of supported browsers, see Oracle Fusion Middleware System Requirements and Specifications at: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/ias/downloads/fusion-requirements-100147.html

    The Login page displays.

  3. Enter the username and password.

    You may have specified the username and password during the installation process. This may be the same username and password that you use to start the Oracle Administration Server. Or, a username that is granted one of the default global security roles.

  4. Click Log In.

For more information, see "Start the Console" in the Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console Online Help.

2.3 Accessing the Web Services Custom WLST Commands

To access the Web services WLST commands:

  1. Go to the Oracle Common home directory for your installation, for example /home/Oracle/Middleware/oracle_common.

    For information about the Oracle Common home directory and installing Oracle Fusion Middleware, see the Planning an Installation of Oracle Fusion Middleware.

  2. Start WLST using the WLST.sh/cmd command located in the oracle_common/common/bin directory. For example:

    • /home/Oracle/Middleware/oracle_common/common/bin/wlst.sh (UNIX)

    • C:\Oracle\Middleware\oracle_common\common\bin\wlst.cmd (Windows)

    When executed, these commands start WLST in offline mode. To use the Web services WLST commands, you must use WLST in online mode.

  3. Start Oracle WebLogic Server.

    For more information, see "Start and stop servers" in the Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console Online Help.

  4. Connect to the running WebLogic Server instance using the connect() command. For example, the following command connects WLST to the Admin Server at the URL myAdminServer.example.com:7001 using the username/password credentials weblogic/welcome1:

    connect("weblogic","welcome1","t3://myAdminServer.example.com:7001")
    

For more information about using WLST, see "Using the WebLogic Scripting Tool" in Understanding the WebLogic Scripting Tool.

For more information about the Web Services WLST commands, see "Web Services Custom WLST Commands" in WLST Command Reference for Infrastructure Components.
