Sun Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition 8.1 2005Q2 Administration Guide

ProcedureTo create a realm

The Application Server comes preconfigured with three realms: file, certificate, and admin-realm. It is also possible to create ldap, solaris, and custom realms. Generally, you will have one realm of each type on a server, but on the Application Server there are two file realms: file and admin-realm. These are two realms of the same type used for two different purposes. It is also possible to have a different certificate database for each virtual server on your system.
