Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Installation and Migration Guide

Creating a Server Instance from the Migrated Configuration

The create-instance command creates the Web Server instance from the configuration. So if migrate-server creates a configuration called foo, the create-instance command creates the instance https-foo using the configuration install_dir/admin-server/config-store/foo in the specified node. The syntax is create-instance --config=config_name host_name.domain_name.

The migrate-server CLI command removes the prefix https- from the old instance and uses that name as the configuration name, while the create-instance command adds the prefix https- to the configuration name and uses that name as the instance name.
