Generic server settings

Use this page to view or change the settings of a generic server.

A generic server is a server that is managed in the WebSphere Application Server administrative domain, although it is not a server that is supplied by the WAS product. The generic server can be any server or process that is necessary to support the Application Server environment, including a Java server, a C or C++ server or process, or a Remote Method Invocation (RMI) server.

To view this administrative console page, click Servers > Generic Servers > servername.

On the Configuration tab, one can edit fields. On the Runtime tab, one can look at read-only information. The Runtime tab is available only when the server is running.

Name

Specifies a logical name for the generic server.

Generic server names must be unique within a node. For multiple nodes within a cluster, one can have different generic servers with the same server name as long as the server and node pair are unique. For example, a server named server1 in a node named node1 in the same cluster with a server named server1 in a node named node2 is allowed. Configuring two servers named server1 in the same node is not allowed. WebSphere Application Server uses the server name for administrative actions, such as referencing the server in scripting.

It is highly recommended that you use a naming scheme that makes it easy to distinguish your generic application servers from regular WebSphere Application Servers. This will enable you to quickly determine whether to use the Terminate or Stop button in the administrative console to stop a specific application server.

You must use the Terminate button to stop a generic application server.
