Starting or stopping a node agent will only start or stop the node agent and the application in the node. The application server and cell will not be restarted.
Before you can start or stop a node agent, you will need to add the node to the deployment manager.
- In the left panel of the WebSphere web console, expand System administration > Nodeagents.
- Check the node agent that you want to restart, and select Restart.
