Need Clarification for Managed Server Services

Hi all,

I have made a Managed Server Service for my Application on WL10Mp1 windows 32-bit platform.
I am able to start and stop from windows services console and my application runs fine with the Managed Server service only.

I need clarification on whether is it dependant on Weblogic Node Manager as I know Admin Server is not required to be up if you are running Managed Server as a service. But I'm not sure whether Node Manager service is required to be running while Managed server service is up!!

I think both Node Manager and Admin Service is not required to be up if you are using a Managed server service to start and stop your application.

Please suggest if I'm wrong anywhere.

Thanks,
-Ricky

Hi,

Nodemanager is not required when we are starting managed server as windows service.It is needed only when we start the managed server through admin console.

And also during the startup of the managed server even if it is a windows service, the admin server should be up as managed server needs to contact the admin to to retrieve its configuration data.

thanks,
So each time i start my managed server i need to keep admin server up!!
and can I shut the admin server down once managed server gets up. As its only requires to get a local copy of new configurations from admin server.

Or i have keep it up always..!!!

I think If i do a redeployment or any changes in admin server then only i need to get a new fresh set of configurations from admin server.

Yes, during the first startup of managed server as service it is recommended that the admin server should be running , and after that managed server as service should be fine without the admin...Also after making any changes it is a nice practice to keep the admin up ....while your are restarting the managed server.

Managed server are normally requires the admin permission to handle, however if you own the server you can freely do this. Otherwise you will had to have these server's on your admin system to mange all type of Managed IT services, and if you don't then you are not able to handle any activities related to these servers.
