Overview

The Administration Server is the central point from where you configure and manage all resources in the domain. Usually, you configure a domain to include additional WebLogic Server instances called Managed Servers. Managed Servers host business applications, application components, Web services, and their associated resources and the Administration Server is used for configuration and management purposes only. The Administration Server operates as the central control entity for the configuration of an entire domain. In each domain, one WebLogic Server instance acts as the Administration Server—the server instance which configures, manages, and monitors all other server instances and resources in the domain. Each Administration Server manages one domain only. A Managed Server is an Oracle WebLogic Server instance that retrieves its configuration data from the domain's Administration Server. There can be multiple Managed Servers in a domain, but only one Administration Server.
