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 the 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.
