Enterprise Server Common Web Administration

The Enterprise Server Common Web Administration (ESCWA) tool is a modern and feature-rich interface that enables you to:

  • Configure a custom dashboard to display and monitor servers, their status, and performance.
  • Monitor and control Enterprise Server instances.
  • Administer Directory Servers, across multiple hosts, which provides the ability to stop, start and configure their Enterprise Server instances.
  • Configure and administer a security manager, defined in an LDAP-compatible security manager such as Microsoft Active Directory, AD LDS or OpenLDAP. You can create, modify and delete users, groups, resource classes, and resource entities. Easily sort and filter users, groups, classes, and resource entities.
  • Enable administration and monitoring of scale-out enterprise server instances for improved performance of systems under load. See Scale-Out Performance and Availability Clusters for more information.
  • Administer, monitor, and control Enterprise Server (ES) for .NET regions and listeners.
  • Administer and monitor enterprise server instances running within a Kubernetes cluster.


ESCWA has the following limitations:

  • The security manager does not support nested groups within the interface. If required, you can administer nested groups from the esfadmin command-line utility.
  • ESCWA does not currently support Web user interface based region import and export.
  • ESCWA is not supported on HP-UX.
