Configure startup arguments for Managed Servers

In most environments, the Node Manager can start a server without requiring you to specify startup options. However, if you have modified your environment; for example, if you have added classes to the WebLogic Server classpath, you must specify startup options before you use the Administration Console to start a server.

To configure the startup options that Node Manager uses to start a Managed Server:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane of the Console, expand Environment and select Servers.
  3. In the Servers table, click the name of the Managed Server you want to configure.
  4. Select Configuration > Server Start.

    The User Name and Password fields contain values that you supplied when you used the Administration Console or the Configuration Wizard to create the server.

    If you want the server instance to run under a different WebLogic Server user account, enter the name of an existing user. The user must be in a role that has permission to start servers. For information on roles and permissions, see Users, Groups, and Security Roles.

  5. Use the remaining fields on this page only if you want to override the default values that the Node Manager provides. See Node Manager Administrator's Guide.

    The Administration Console replaces the Node Manager defaults with the values you provide; it does not append the values to the Node Manager defaults. If you provide values for the Classpath field, make sure that you provide the full class path required to start the Managed Server.

    Note: All paths refer to paths on the Node Manager machine.

    For more information about the values to enter in these fields, refer to Configuration Options.

  6. Click Save.
  7. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).

After you finish

If the server is running, restart it.
