System Administration | Node Agents


Specifies a logical name for the node agent server.


Specifies a name for the node. The node name is unique within the cell.

A node name usually is identical to the host name for the computer. That is, a node usually corresponds to a physical computer system with a distinct IP host address.

However, the node name is a purely logical name for a group of servers. You can name the node anything you please. The node name does not have to be the host name.

Both Internet Protocol V4 (IPv4) and Internet Protocol V6 (IPv6) are now supported by WebSphere Application Server, but there are restrictions that apply to using both IPv4 and IPv6 in the same cell. Note that when a node is added to a cell, the format in which the name is specified is based on the version of IP the node will be using.


Specifies the product version of the node.

The product version is the version of a WAS node agent and Application Servers that run on the node.


Indicates whether the node agent server is started or stopped.

Note that if the status of servers such application servers is Unavailable, the node agent is not running in the servers' node and restart the node agent before one can start the servers.
