Manage appservers

To view information about an appserver, use the Application Servers of the administrative console..

Network Deployment and z/OS WAS

For the Network Deployment and z/OS products, you can use the Application Servers page of the administrative console to manage appservers. Or, if you prefer, you can also use the wasadmin tool or command line tools such as startServer and stopServer for managing application servers.

Base WAS

For the Base WAS product, although you can use the administrative console to create a new server definition, you cannot use it to start, stop or, in any way, control or manage that server. The Base product administrative console can only be used to create server definitions and, if necessary, adjust the server definitions that it creates. To manage Base application servers, use the wasadmin tool or the command line tools such as startServer and stopServer.

For the Base WAS product, manage each application server from the console that is hosted by that appserver process.
