startServer (WebSphere)

Starts one or multiple IBM WebSphere Servers.

Due to limitations in the WSAdmin tool, server names must be node-qualified to start. This means that server names must be formatted as "Node-Name/Server-Name".

This operation is executed in a different manner depending upon the WebSphere installation.

  • In a Network Deploy environment, the plugin will use the WSAdmin tool to start the servers.
  • In a WAS Base environment, the plugin uses the startServer script located in the same directory as the WSAdmin script (WebSphere Install Root/bin).
