Configure Intelligent Management for web servers

Enable Intelligent Management on the web server to use Intelligent Management capabilities.

To learn about the web server plug-in configuration tasks, read about selecting a web server topology.

Before you enable Intelligent Management for a web server, disable the dynamic generation of the plugin-cfg.xml file for that web server. Remove all the cell custom property names that begin with ODCPluginCfg, if they apply to a web server with Intelligent Management enabled. Dynamically generating the plugin-cfg.xml file overwrites the Intelligent Management settings in the plugin-cfg.xml file. To learn about the dynamic generation procedures, read about generating the plug-in configuration in a high availability environment, or about configuring an ODR to dynamically update the web server plug-in configuration.


You configured the web server for Intelligent Management.
