    start jboss 7 in --admin-only mode windows CLI

    Benedict Leahy Newbie

      Hi there,

       

      How do I start jboss 7 in --admin-only mode for windows.

       

      For Linux I believe the syntax is /home]>jboss-as-7.1.1.Final/bin/standalone.sh --admin-only

       

      I can't run a .sh file in windows and when I run jboss-as-7.0.0.Final\bin\standalone.conf.bat if get ERROR [stderr] Invalid option '--admin-only're

       

      The JRE I'm using is

       

      java version "1.7.0_79"

      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_79-b15)

      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.79-b02, mixed mode)

       

      Is there a way to run jboss 7 in --admin-only mode ? for windows?

       

      Thanks a lot

          JBoss AS 7.0.0.Final or JBoss EAP 7.0.0.GA?

           

          for running EAP7 you need JDK8, so I am assuming you are trying to run initial community release of AS 7, which is way older than 7.1.1...

           

          app server works the same on linux and windows and so do all parameters you pass to it.

            Interesting, thank you very much for your help.

             

            So attest to Tomaz's suggestion.

             

            I needed to install Jboss 7.1.1 , just installing Java8 was not enough. it only stopped throwing an exception when I had jdk8 and jboss 7.1.1 installed.

             

            Its no longer throwing an exception so I presume jboss must be running in admin only mode. Thanks again for your quick response and help.

              Yes it does.

              But you should know that AS7 does not work on JDK8 properly.

              for more info on that see JBoss AS7 and JDK8

                You're right Jboss didn't start properly with JDK8 , So I switch it back to JDK7 and it started fully.

                 

                So a quick note for the the answer, running jboss 7.1.1 with JDK7 does allow jboss to start fully in --admin-only mode

                 

                Thanks to the conscientious response. It did help.
