Basic Installation Procedures for Application Server

The basic procedures for installing and configuring Application Server are as follows:

  1. Use the Java ES installer to install and configure Application Server on the computer systems specified in your deployment architecture. When you install Application Server, you specify configuration values. In some cases (Access Manager and Portal Server), you also specify configuration values for the supported component, and the supported component is deployed to the Application Server instance. In other cases, you separately run the supported component's configuration wizard to create and deploy an instance.

  2. Start and verify all of the Application Server instances.

  3. Verify that the supported components are running.

  4. If your solution uses load balancing, verify that the load balancing is routing requests among the Application Server instances.
