Registering stand-alone application servers with job managers
After a stand-alone application server is registered with an administrative agent, you must register the application server with a job manager to enable the job manager to administer the application server and its resources.
Before we can register the stand-alone application server nodes with the job manager, the stand-alone application servers must be registered with an administrative agent. Ensure that the administrative agent version number (excluding fix pack level) is not higher than any job manager with which we are registering the administrative agent. For details on registering stand-alone application servers with an administrative agent, see the topic on setting up the administrative agent environment.
To register stand-alone nodes with a job manager, we can use the administrative agent console or the wsadmin registerWithJobManager command.
- Use the administrative agent console to register stand-alone application server nodes.
- Click System administration > Administrative agent.
- On the Configuration tab of the Administrative agent page, click Nodes.
- On the Nodes page, select the node to register with the job manager and click Register with Job Manager.
- On the Register with Job Manager page, specify a node name, specify a job manager administrative console port number, optionally specify other parameters such as the job manager user name and password, and click OK.
Avoid trouble: For Port, specify the job manager administrative console port. If security is not enabled, specify the unsecure job manager administrative console port; the default is 9960 for an unsecure job manager administrative console port. If no port number is specified, the default secure port number 9943 is used.gotcha
- Use the wsadmin registerWithJobManager command to register stand-alone application server nodes. The command is in the ManagedNodeAgent command group.
- Open a command window on the bin directory of the administrative agent profile.
- Run a wsadmin command to start wsadmin.sh, connect wsadmin.sh to the administrative agent process.
For example, connect to the administrative agent process adminagent and use the Jython language:
wsadmin -profileName adminagent -lang jython
- Run the registerWithJobManager command to make a stand-alone application server a managed node of the job manager.
AdminTask.registerWithJobManager('[-host jobmgr_host -port jobmgr_console_port -managedNodeName application_server_node]')
jobmgr_host is the host name of the job manager. The default value is localhost.
jobmgr_console_port specifies the job manager administrative console port number. If security is disabled, the default unsecure port number is 9960. If security is enabled, optionally specify the secure port number. The default secure port number is 9943. If no port number is specified, 9943 is used.
application_server_node is the host name of the stand-alone application server, for example, myHostNode01.
Alternatively, we can run the registerWithJobManager command in interactive mode:
If the command is successful, wsadmin displays the unique ID (UUID) of the job manager. For example:

Verify that the application server target is registered with the job manager.
