(Doc ID 1465312.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Weblogic Server - Version 8.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


There may be a situation where one could try to start a manager server improperly, the following scenario is one of them.

For example, this is an attempt to start a WebLogic Managed Server, that does not exists on a domain, and there isn't even a domain created at all in this installation.

The script used is from a location that is not the domain files, Note it is the WebLogic Home folders.



We must be explicit at the moment of WebLogic Domain Creation/Configuration.
