BEA Weblogic 8.1 Do I have to use the nodemanager running multiple managed servers on one machine?

Hi,

I'm currently using BEA Weblogic 8.1.
Because of the security-policy utilized by my employer I don't have local-admin rights on my PC running XP. Now there is a nodemanager installed as a server. Using it results in files being created which I cannot delete and which I must be able to delete.
Those probably have been created by the nodemanager. (it typically has "system-account" security settings)

I'm running 1 admin server and 4 managed servers locally on my PC. Can I have the problem resolved by asking for enough rights to handle the files myself and have the nodemanager removed ? Or do I really have to use it ?
It's not clear to me whether nodemanager is just for ease of use or it's really required. Remember, I'm running on 1 pc locally all mentioned "servers".

Can anyone point it out to me ?
Thanks,
Ronald

Yes you need the node manager to talk to managed instances. You can control the instances from the admin server

Thanks Deepak.
But I don't have to run it as a Windows Service. That's correct ?
I believe I can run it from the command line ?
As I pointed out: some people are affraid we're doing spooky stuff on development PC's . And windows services are considered dangerous, so I can't install, uninstall, stop or start'm...... So I need a way to solve that.

Sure, you can run the node manager from the command line. The advantage with running it as a service is that it automatically restarts on a server restart

Hi Deepak,
Great!! So I don't have to depend on hard-headed systemmanagers!!
That's a big relief!
Thanks for the info. I really appreciate it!
Bye.
