Administer DataPower appliance domains

A DataPower appliance domain is a group of configuration information for an appliance. By default, these domains are unmanaged. We can use the console to change an unmanaged domain to a managed domain, or to change a managed domain to an unmanaged domain. However, we cannot use the console to configure a domain. We must use the DataPower WebGUI to configure a domain. See the DataPower WebGUI documentation for information about configuring a domain.

We can use the console to change an unmanaged domain to a managed domain. However, we cannot use the console to configure a domain. Use the DataPower WebGUI to configure a domain. See the DataPower WebGUI documentation for information about configuring a domain.

The DataPower appliance manager synchronizes managed domains from the master appliance to the subordinate appliances in the managed set. However, it is possible that the managed domain might not be completely functional on all of the subordinate appliances. An example of this situation is when a service object, such as an XML firewall, in the managed domain has a listening port conflict on one of the subordinate appliances.gotcha
