    service jmp-watchdog stop

    service jboss-dc stop

    service jboss stop

  2. Start the watchdog service.

    service jmp-watchdog start

    Note

    Starting the watchdog service restarts the JBoss and domain controller services as well.

To restart the JBoss server in a cluster setup:

  1. Stop the services on the backup node.

    service jmp-watchdog stop

    service jboss stop

  2. Stop the services on the primary node (You can find the VIP hosted node Space > Fabric)

    service jmp-watchdog

    stop service jboss-dc

    stop service jboss stop

  3. Start the services on the primary node.

    service jmp-watchdog start

  4. Start the service on the backup node.

    service jmp-watchdog start

Note

Starting the watchdog service restarts the JBoss and domain controller services as well. JBoss server takes up to 20 minutes to start.
