Batch Mode in AdminTask

The following example invokes an administrative command with no target object, argument, or step:

print AdminTask.listNodes()

The following example invokes an administrative command with a target object string:

s1 = AdminConfig.getid('/Server:server1/')
print AdminTask.showServerInfo(s1)

{cell myCell}
{node myNode}
{server server1}

The following example invokes an administrative command with an option string:

print AdminTask.getNodeMajorVersion('[-nodeName myNode]')

The following example invokes an administrative command with a target object and non-step option strings:

ra = AdminConfig.getid('/J2CResourceAdapter:myResourceAdapter/')
AdminTask.createJ2CConnectionFactory(ra, '[-name myJ2CCF -jndiName j2c/cf -connectionFactoryInterface

 The following example invokes an administrative command with a target object and a step option:

serverCluster = AdminConfig.getid('/ServerCluster:myCluster/')
AdminTask.createClusterMember(serverCluster, '[-memberConfig [[myNode myClusterMember "" "" false false]]]') 

Different Modes of administrative commands

Two run modes are always available for each administrative command, namely the batch and interactive mode. When you use an administrative command in interactive mode, you go through a series of steps to collect your input interactively. This process provides users a text-based wizard and a similar user experience to the wizard in the administrative console. You can also use the help command to obtain help for any administrative command and the AdminTask object.

The administrative commands do not replace any existing configuration commands or running object management commands but provide a way to access these commands and organize the inputs. The administrative commands can be available in connected or local mode. The set of available administrative commands is determined when you start a scripting client in connected or local mode. If a server is running, it is not recommended that you run the scripting client in local mode because any configuration changes made in local mode are not reflected in the running server configuration and vice versa. If you save a conflicting configuration, you could corrupt the configuration.

Different levels of online help in AdminTask Object

You can select from three levels of online help for administrative commands.

The top-level help provides general information for the AdminTask object and associated commands. The second-level help provides information about all of the available administrative commands and command groups. The third-level help provides specific help on a command group, a command, or a step. Command group-specific help provides descriptions for the command group that you specify and the commands that belong to the associated group. Command-specific help provides description for the specified command, and associated parameters and steps. Step-specific help provides a description for the specified step and the associated parameters. For command and step-specific help, required parameters are marked with an asterisk (*) in the help output.
