How to Install WebLogic node manager as windows service

Weblogic Node Manager is a Java utility that runs as a separate process to do common operations like start/stop managed servers, automatically restart the managed server if it stops unexpectedly and monitor the server health status irrespective of the location. This operation can be performed through WebLogic admin server console or from theĀ command line. The Node manager should be running to perform those operations. This tutorial we are covering on setting up the Node Manager as Windows service.


Go in to your WebLogic server directory. This is the where the wlserver folder is present as shown below

    it worked by setting the location of WL_Home and then open the file through command prompt as admin.
    Thanks for your help

    1.Open a command prompt as an Administrator , go to the Weblogic server bin directory, run the file installNodeMgrSVC.cmd and check the output

    For example:

    cd wlserverserverbin

    Thanks a lot Govind for such a detailed and handy installation guide.
    Pardon, I have stuck with Oracle WebLogic NodeManager installation. After even following the step-by-step guide, when I open windows services, I could not find Oracle WebLogic NodeManager there. Could you please let me know the reason or other way round to do this?
