3.2 Managing Content Server with the Admin Server

This section includes the following topics:

3.2.1 About the Admin Server

The Admin Server is a collection of Web pages that enable you to configure system-wide settings for a content server instance. If you use the Admin Server, keep the following restrictions in mind:

  • You must be logged in as the system administrator or a user with the sysmanager role to access the Admin Server.

  • To administer a Content Server instance with the Admin Server, the instance must be accessible on the local file system. The drive on which any remote instance is installed must be mapped or mounted to the local drive.

  • The Admin Server must run on the same file system as the content server that it administrates.

  • Previous to 11g Release 1 (11.1.1), the Admin Server could be used to start, stop, and restart Content Server. By default those functions are now managed through Oracle WebLogic Server or Fusion Middleware Control. See "Starting, Stopping, and Restarting Content Server".
