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

ProcedureTo create an Instance

  1. In the tree component, select the Standalone Instances node.

  2. On the Stand Alone Server Instances page, click New.

  3. In the Name field, identify a unique name for the new instance.

  4. Select a Node Agent.

    The node agent must be started using the asadmin start-node-agent command on the node agent’s host machine so that the server instance you are creating can be associated with that node agent.

  5. Select a desired configuration.

    • Reference an existing configuration. No new configuration is added.

    • Make a copy of an existing configuration. A new configuration is added when the server instance or cluster is added.

  6. To copy from a different configuration, specify it when creating the new instance.

    By default, new instances are created with configurations copied from the default-config configuration.

  7. For a server instance, the new configuration is named instance-name-config.

    The configuration default-config is the default configuration that acts as a template for creating standalone server instance. No unclustered server instances or clusters are allowed to refer to the default-config configuration; it can only be copied to create new configurations. Edit the default configuration to ensure that new configurations copied from it have the correct initial settings.
