ProcedureTo Create a Node Agent

  1. Type the following command:

    asadmin create-node-agent --host das-host --port port-no --user das-user 
    [--savemasterpassword=true] nodeagent

    To enable the node agent to be started without prompting the user for a password, save the node agent's master password to a file. To save the node agent's master password to a file, set the --savemasterpassword option to true in the command to create the node agent.

    If you set --savemasterpassword to true, you are prompted for the master password. Otherwise, you are not prompted for a password.

    Specifies the HTTP/HTTPS port number for administering the domain.

    --user das-user

    Specifies the DAS user.


    Specifies the name of the node agent that you are creating. This name must be unique in the domain.
