ProcedureTo configure a JMX connector using the Admin Service

Use the Admin Service to configure a JSR-160 compliant remote JMX connector, which handles communication between the domain administration server and the node agents, which manage server instances on a host machine, for remote server instances.

The Admin Service determines whether the server instance is a regular instance, a domain administration server (DAS), or a combination. A DAS is similar to a J2EE server instance, except that user applications and resources are not deployed to a DAS, though it is capable of serving user application requests. The only significant difference between a DAS and a J2EE Server Instance is that the former can not be a part of a cluster, the homogeneous unit of server instances.

  1. Select Configurations from the tree.

  2. Select the instance to configure:

    1. To configure a particular instance, select the instance’s config node. For example, for the default instance, server, select the server-config node.

    2. To configure the default settings for future instances that use a copy of default-config, select the default-config node.

  3. Select Admin Service from the tree.

  4. From the Type drop-down menu, select what you want the Admin service to configure: DAS , DAS and server, or server. Selecting DAS and server is the same as selecting DAS. The server selection selects a non-DAS server instance.

  5. In the JMX Connector Name field, enter the name of the JMX connector used internally. The name of the connector is system.
