Configuring Application Server With Non-root ID

To configure Application Server with a non-root ID, you can set up an entire administrative domain owned and operated by a non-root user.

  1. Log in to the host using a non–root user ID.

  2. Run the asadmin create-domain command with the --domaindir option, pointing to the directory where you have write permissions. For example:

    /opt/SUNWappserver/appserver/bin ./asadmin create-domain --domaindir /export/domains --adminport 5050 --adminuser admin --passwordfile /tmp/passwordfile --instanceport 9090 domain2

    In this example domain2 directory will be created under /export/domains

  3. Start this domain using the --domaindir option again. For example:

    /opt/SUNWappserver/appserver/bin ./asadmin start-domain --domaindir /export/domains --user admin --passwordfile /tmp/passwordfile domain2
