Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v2.1.1 Troubleshooting Guide

Restarting a Domain

To restart your domain on a UNIX platform, add a line containing the appropriate asadmin start-domain command to your /etc/inittab file. If you use /etc/rc.local, or your system’s equivalent, place a the desired asadmin command in /etc/rc.local.

For example, to restart domain1 for Enterprise Server installed in the /opt/SUNWappserver directory, using a password file called password.txt, add the following line to /etc/inittab or /etc/rc.local:

das:3:respawn:/opt/SUNWappserver/bin/asadmin start-domain --user admin 
--passwordfile /opt/SUNWappserver/password.txt domain1

Be sure to put the text on one line. The first three letters are a unique designator for the process and can be altered.
