I am re-opening this issue so that the next doc refresh can have the correct summary.
Currently, it says:
There are a number of functions in that you can perform through the GlassFish Server
Administration Console. These functions require a server restart, but the Administration
Console does not correctly convey this."
This is not quite correct. It is saying that the Admin Console does not show the correct information to user, when in fact, the information that console shown is correct. It is that the backend or each of the components in the bug list doesn't specify that restart is required.
In order word, even if user is using CLI to look at the status, eg. list-domains or list-instances to check if instance need restart, they will see the wrong information.
So, i think the wording should be changed to reflect the issue more accurately.
