2.2 Starting the Administration Server

To be able to use the administration interfaces—administration console and command-line interface, the administration server should be running.

To start the administration server, run the following command:

> $INSTANCE_HOME/admin-server/bin/startserv

INSTANCE_HOME is the directory that contains all the Oracle Traffic Director instances, including the administration server instance. This is the directory that you specified with the instance-home option while creating the administration server by using the configure-server command.

The startserv command starts the administration server using the port that you specified while creating the administration server.

Wait for the successful server startup message to be displayed, as shown in the following example:

Oracle Traffic Director B01/14/2013 09:08
[NOTIFICATION:1] [OTD-80118] Using [Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM, Version 1.6.0_29] from [Sun Microsystems Inc.]
[NOTIFICATION:1] [OTD-80000] Loading web module in virtual server [admin-server] at [/admin]
[NOTIFICATION:1] [OTD-80000] Loading web module in virtual server [admin-server] at [/jmxconnector]
[NOTIFICATION:1] [OTD-10358] admin-ssl-port: ready to accept requests
[NOTIFICATION:1] [OTD-10487] successful server startup

You can now use the administration interfaces of Oracle Traffic Director—administration console and command-line interface—to configure and manage Oracle Traffic Director instances.

To use the administration console and the command-line interface, you should log in by using the user name and password that you specified while creating the administration server. For more information, see Section 2.3, "Accessing the Administration Interfaces."
