domainStart

Starts all servers in WebLogic domain including Admin Server except for those in the FDWLS_START_SERVER_EXCLUDE_LIST. Admin Server is started first, then servers with WLS_WSM in name (WLS_WSM1, WLS_WSM2 etc.) are started prior to starting the rest of the managed servers. This is done as various Fusion Middleware products are dependent on WSM servers and starting it first helps avoid issues in startup of other managed servers.


Managed servers on various machines are started in parallel. You can control what percentage of servers are started on each machine by using FDWLS_INP_MAX_PERCENT_SIMULTANEOUS. This is done to control CPU utilization on each machine by controlling how many servers are started on each machine. This value defaults to 20 percent.


This operation can also be used to start servers on specific machine by providing value for FDWLS_INP_MACHINE_NAME input.
