What is replacement of Visual Administrator (VA)? NetWeaver Administrator (NWA)

JAVA Visual Administrator (VA) tool (also known as J2EE Visual Administrator tool) is well known for SAP Basis guys. It is graphical user interface (GUI) which enables administration of JAVA related settings across all clusters and all modules running on them. By using it administrator can do things like remote management and monitoring of managers, services, libraries, and interfaces, log files, changing key store etc.

The tool can be started via go.bat (on WINDOWS) or (on l/unix) from server path: usr/sap///j2ee/admin/

The tool was introduced early when JAVA stack of NetWeaver came to market. What has changed with introduction of SAP NetWeaver 7.1 EhP1 is that Visual Administrator got ramped down and is replaced by SAP NetWeaver Administrator (NWA). 

The new NWA is browser tool for administration and monitoring of SAP NetWeaver JAVA Application Server system. The tool runs as a servlet on the Java engine. 

It is accessible on top of your JAVA stack under following URL: http(s)://:/nwa 

All its function are accessible either via menu within the tool or via URL shortcuts. List of all shortcuts is available on: http(s)://:/nwa/quicklinks
