Administer application servers

An application server configuration provides settings that control how an application server provides services for running applications and their components.

After you install the product, we might have to perform one or more of the following tasks. Unless the task to perform is dependent on the existence of an application server, we can perform these tasks in any order.

Best practice: IBM recommends starting processes that run on the same profile with user IDs that have mutually compatible file permissions, meaning that each process can read or update files that the other processes create. This ensures that the processes can access the same files without encountering a permission-denied error. For example, if you run the deployment manager as user wasuser and then also run the tool to generate plug-ins on that same profile, you should run the tool as user wasuser.bprac


Any new application servers you create are displayed in the list of servers on the console Application servers page.
