Before you begin
Ensure that you have created a cluster and assigned Managed Servers to it.
For information on creating a Managed Server, see Create Managed Servers.
To start Managed Servers in the Standby or Admin mode, see Specify a startup mode.
Node Manager is a stand-alone Java program provided with each WebLogic Server installation. You use it to start, stop, and suspend server instances, and to automatically restart servers that fail. Node Manager must run on each computer that hosts WebLogic Server instances that you want to control with the Node Manager. Configure each computer as a machine in WebLogic Server, and assign each server instance that you will control with Node Manager to the machine upon which it runs. See:
For more information on Node Manger, see Administering Node Manager for Oracle WebLogic Server.
Although running Node Manager as an operating system service is recommended, you can also start the Node Manager manually at the command prompt or with a script. On Windows, you can start the Node Manager using a shortcut on the Start menu. See Administering Node Manager for Oracle WebLogic Server.
When an operation is complete for a Managed Server, TASK COMPLETED appears in the Status column.
