nodeManagerStart

Starts the Node Manager process. This operation can be used to start Node Manager on all hosts in your WebLogic domain.You can control which plugin operation execution by selecting endpoint specification on Workflow, which should allow you to start Node Manager on all hosts in your WebLogic domain.

If node manager is not installed in default location, then you need to specify FDWLS_INP_NODEMANAGER_HOME. Node Manager home (location of NodeManager.properties file) is different for 11g and 12c environments, plugin will derive default location based on WebLogic version and whether it is Node or Domain based node manager setup.

If your entire domain is on shared folder, then you will have defined custom Node Manager home folder, in which case you must specify FDWLS_INP_NODEMANAGER_HOME input.

If you are using Enterprise Deployment for 12c installation, you will need node manager for aserver folder structure as well, which is different than mserver folder even if AdminServer and some of the Managed Servers are running on same host.

Artifacts

This operation doesn't consume or produce any artifacts.


Endpoint Selection

This operation delegates endpoint selection to the workflow developer. The workflow editor will default the selection to "All", which selects all available endpoints associated to the environment instance. Selecting a specific resource will result in selection of endpoints associated to the environment instance which have that resource defined.


Endpoint Execution

This operation delegates endpoint execution to the workflow developer. The workflow editor will default to "Any", which will execute on any one of the selected endpoints, which will be randomly picked from selected endpoints or a specific endpoint where previous step may have executed. Changing this value to "All" to will result in execution on all selected endpoints.
