Start and stopping the job manager

In the flexible management environment, we can start the job manager using the startServer command. We can stop the job manager using the stopServer command.

Before we can start or stop the job manager, first install the product.

Start the job manager so that we can administer jobs for large numbers of unfederated application servers and deployment managers. Stop the job manager as needed, such as when migrating to a new version of the product, when uninstalling the product, and so on.


You have started the job manager and have optionally stopped it.

What to do next
