Apps installed with SEAppInstall.bat

Hi all,
When I install an ear via SEAppInstall, I don't
see that application on the Admin Console. The
application just works fine. Could it be the
server-cfg.xml. Are there command line tools
to add my application to that file or better still - where is that file documented?

<installedApps xmi:id="ApplicationRef_8" desiredExecutionState="STOP" name="PiggyBank Application" archiveURL="${APP_INSTALL_ROOT}\piggybank.ear">
<modules xmi:type="applicationserver:WebModuleRef" xmi:id="WebModuleRef_11" uri="piggybank-webapp.war"/>
<modules xmi:type="applicationserver:EJBModuleRef" xmi:id="EJBModuleRef_18" uri="piggybank-ejb.jar"/>
The above entry shows up when the ear is installed
via the console. After an SEAppInstall if I
manually enter the above xmi snippet in
server-cfg.xml it shows up on the console after a
Is SEAppInstall required to make that entry in
