stopManager command



Search Tips   |   Advanced Search


The stopManager command reads the configuration file for the Network Deployment manager process.

It sends a JMX command to the manager telling it to shut down. By default, the stopManager command waits for the manager to complete the shutdown process before it returns control to the command line. There is a -nowait option to return immediately, as well as other options to control the behavior of the stopManager command.

If using the Windows platform and the we have the dmgr running as a Windows service, the stopManager command will stop the associated Windows service and it will be responsible for stopping the dmgr.



The command syntax is as follows:

stopManager [options]



The following options are available for the stopManager command:


Tells the stopManager command not to wait for successful shutdown of the dmgr process.


Suppresses the progress information that the stopManager command prints in normal mode.

-logfile <fileName>

Location of the log file to which trace information is written. By default, the log file is named stopServer.log and is created in the logs directory.


Defines the profile of the appserver process in a multi-profile installation. The -profileName option is not required for running in a single profile environment. The default for this option is the default profile.


Replaces the log file instead of appending to the current log.


Generates trace information to a file for debugging purposes. The trace output is written to the stopmanager.log file which is located in...



-timeout <seconds>

Waiting time for the manager to complete shutdown before timing out and returning an error.

-statusport <portNumber>

An optional parameter that allows an administrator to set the port number for dmgr status callback. The tool opens this port and waits for status callback from the dmgr just before the deployment manager has completely stopped. If the parameter is not set, an unused port is automatically allocated.

-conntype <type>

JMX connector type to use for connecting to the dmgr. Valid types are SOAP or RMI.

-port <portNumber>

Deployment manager JMX port to use explicitly, so that we can avoid reading the configuration files to obtain information.

-username <name>

User name for authentication if security is enabled in the dmgr. Acts the same as the -user option.

-user <name>

User name for authentication if security is enabled in the dmgr. Acts the same as the -username option.

-password <password>

Password for authentication if security is enabled in the dmgr.

If running in a secure environment but have not provided a user ID and password, you receive the following error message:

ADMN0022E: Access denied for the stop operation on Server MBean due to insufficient or empty credentials.
To solve this problem, provide the user ID and password information.
