Restart a node

We can start a node using the startNode command. We can stop a node using the stopNode command. Restart a node is applicable only if your profile, also known as a node, is added to a WebSphere Application Server WAS ND domain or cell.

Before we can start and stop a node, we 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 ND environment. Before the environment can service requests, we must have the deployment manager and node started, and typically an HTTP server.


We have started and stopped a node.

What to do next

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