Introduction: Administrative commands

  • Command line tools are simple programs that you run from an operating system command-line prompt to perform specific tasks, as opposed to general purpose administration. Using the tools, we can start and stop application servers, check server status, add or remove nodes, and complete similar tasks.

    See Reference > Command-line utilities in the information center navigation area for the names and syntax of all the commands that are available with the product. A subset of these commands is particular to system administration purposes.
