Starting or stopping a WebSphere application server will restart all of the layers within the application server, including the profile, cell, nodes, and apps. 

 


Web console

If using the web console, you will need to sign into the network deployment manager (dmgr) web console.

  1. In the left panel of the WebSphere web console, expand Servers > Server Types.
  2. Select Websphere application servers.
  3. Check the application server that should be restarted, and select Restart.

 


Command Line

Start an application server.

~]# /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/startServer.sh server_name -profileName profile_name
. . .
ADMU4000I: Server server_name open for e-business; process id is 12345

 

Stop an application server.

~]# /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/stopServer.sh server_name -profileName profile_name
. . .
ADMU4000I: Server server_name stop completed.

 

The SystemOut.log file will contain "open for e-business" when the application server has started.

ADMU3000I: Server server1 open for e-business; process id is 12345.

 

A crontab job can be created to ensure the deployment manager is started when the system is rebooted.

@reboot bash /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/startServer.sh server_name -profileName profile_name
