How to start or stop WebSphere Job Manager

Home > Search > How-to

The job manager is deprecated. Instead of job manager, use Urban Code Deploy.


You must install the network deployment manager (dmgr) and create a job manager profile before you can start or stop the job manager.

Web console

Stop the job manager. Once you stop the deployment manager, you will no longer be to use the web console. The deployment manager will need to be started from the command line to be able to use the web console again.

  1. In the left panel of the WebSphere web console, expand System Administration.
  2. Select Job manager.
  3. Select Stop.


Command Line

Start a job manager.

~]# /opt/IBM/WebSphere/Dmgr/profiles/JobMgr01/bin/ your_job_manager_server
. . .
ADMU3000I: Server your_job_manager_server open for e-business; process id is 12345


Once started, you can access the Job Manager web console at http://hostname:9960/ibm/console.

The ps command (Linux) can be used to ensure the Job Manager is running.

~]# ps -ef | grep JobManager


Stop a job manager.

~]# /opt/IBM/WebSphere/Dmgr/profiles/JobMgr01/bin/ your_job_manager_server
. . .
ADMU4000i: Server your_dmgr_server stop completed.


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

@reboot bash /opt/IBM/WebSphere/Dmgr/profiles/JobMgr01/bin/ your_job_manager_server
