Description of problem:
More complete documentation of the use of the -b and -u command line switches is needed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The -b command line switch is commonly used and a variant has been around in JBoss AS / EAP since the earliest days. How it works with EAP 6 is subtle though and is different from EAP 4/5. It's important that proper usage is documented.
A similar situation exists with the -u switch, although it isn't as commonly used.
Section "2.1.6. Reference of Switches and Arguments to pass at Server Runtime" doesn't really cover the use of these switches beyond the bare minimum statement that they control some system properties. I haven't found any coverage elsewhere in the guide either.
Full documentation can be found in the "Controlling the Bind Address with -b" and "Controlling the Default Multicast Address with -u" sections of the community docs at https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/AS72/Command+line+parameters

1) Missing comma after this sentence:
Alternative configurations might include starting the server with an alternative socket bindings set or a secondary configuration
2) Arguments from domain.sh are missing in "Runtime Switches and Arguments" table (these arguments were in that table in 6.4.0-35 revision). For example "--backup", "--cached-dc", "--domain-config", etc. are missing.
Verified in revision 6.4.0-39
