2.6 Changing Administration Server Settings

You can change the administration server settings by using either the administration console or the CLI.


The CLI examples in this section are shown in shell mode (tadm>). For information about invoking the CLI shell, see Section 2.3.1, "Accessing the Command-Line Interface."

Changing the Administration Server Settings Using the Administration Console

To change the properties of the administration server by using the administration console, do the following:

  1. Log in to the administration console, as described in Section 2.3.2, "Accessing the Administration Console."

  2. Click the Nodes button that is situated near the upper left corner of the page.

    A list of available nodes is displayed.

  3. From the list of nodes, select Administration Server.

    The General Settings page is displayed. On this page you can do the following:

    • Change the SSL port number on which the administration server communicates.

    • Change the path to the JDK that the administration server process should use.

    • Change the locations of the access and server logs, and the server log level.

    • Change the user ID with which the administration server runs. Note that you can change the user ID only when the administration server is running as the root user and if there are no instances running on the administration server.

    You can also set and configure a pin for the internal token for the administration server's certificates database, and change and configure the authentication mode for the administration server. For more information, see Section 11.1, "Securing Access to the Administration Server."

  4. Specify the parameters that you want to change, and then click Save.

    A message is displayed in the Console Messages pane indicating that the updated settings are saved.

  5. Restart the administration server by clicking Restart in the Common Tasks pane.

Changing the Administration Server Settings Using the CLI

To change the settings of the administrator server by using the CLI, run the following command:

tadm> set-admin-prop (property=value)+

You can specify one or more property=value pairs separated by spaces, as shown in the following example:

tadm> set-admin-prop ssl-port=8900 log-level=WARNING:1

For information about the properties that you can set by using the set-admin-prop command, see the Oracle Traffic Director Command-Line Reference or run the command with the --help option.


For the changes to take effect, you must restart the administration server.
