Start and stop a node

We can start a node using the startNode command. We can stop a node using the stopNode command. Starting and stopping a node is applicable only if the profile, also known as a node, is added to a WAS WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment domain or cell.

Before we can start and stop a node, you must federate the node into a cell.

Start the deployment manager and add the node as a managed node of the deployment manager. Adding the managed node federates the node.

Start or stop a node as need in administering the WAS Network Deployment environment. Before the environment can service requests, you must have the deployment manager and node started, and typically an HTTP server.


You have started and stopped a node.

What to do next

We can deploy applications, create a cluster, and generally administer the WAS Network Deployment environment.
