Suspend a server

The Suspend command transitions a server instance from the RUNNING state to the ADMIN state. In the ADMIN state, WebLogic Server is up and running, but available only for administration operations, allowing you to perform server and application-level administration tasks without risk to running applications. See ADMIN State.

  1. In the left pane of the Console, expand Environment and select Servers.
  2. In the Servers table, click the name of the server that you want to suspend.
  3. Select Control > Start/Stop.
  4. Select one of the following options:
    1. Suspend when work completes.

      Moves server instances from the RUNNING state to the ADMIN state, allowing work in process to be handled gracefully. While in the SUSPENDING state, Work Managers complete in-flight processing for pending work in application threads. For more information, see Suspending State.

    2. Suspend force suspend now.

      Immediately moves server instances from the RUNNING state to the ADMIN state, without handling work in process gracefully. For more information, see Force Suspending State.

  5. On the Server Life Cycle Assistant page, click Yes to confirm.

    For information on how the server transitions from RUNNING to the ADMIN state, see Understanding Server States.
