From WAS 7 it is possible to administer multiple application server JVMs using a single administration console. It is not as powerful as WAS ND, but can be good for situations where you need load balancing and or ability to start and stop application servers, without having to loose the admin console all the time.

Using the PMT (Profile Management Tool) <was_root>/bin/ProfileManagent/pmt.sh, create a management profile for the Administrative Agent, then create a new application server profile or use the command line tool called manageprofiles.sh. One the profile is created you can federate into the cell (Admin Agents' profile must exist and be running), then use the following command to federate the new app server into the cell.

Note: Assumes the current directory is <was_admin_profile_root>/bin

./registerNode.sh -profilePath /var/apps/was8/profiles/appsrv02 -username wasadmin -password wasadmin
