This article is your guide for setting up a clustered IBM WebSphere Process Server for Multiplatforms V6.0.2. With it you can successfully navigate the relevant terminology, concepts and decision points to successfully design and implement a deployment environment. By taking this step-by-step approach through the design, installation, configuration and verification of a single-cell, clustered environment, you can see the impact of the planning decisions you need to make. When your decisions match the choices of the article, then your deployment environment will be a fully functioning "reference" implementation.
This document is a guide to implementing a representative IBM® WebSphere® Process Server clustered environment. It provides an overview of the WebSphere Process Server environment, and then describes planning, installation, configuration, and verification that all components are working correctly. The topology, or layout of servers for this representative environment includes several computer systems and several server processes and as a result provides opportunities for scaling and failover support. In this document, we refer to this representative environment as the "reference topology." This reference topology is generic enough to enable you to implement it on many platforms and with many configurations. For illustrative purposes, we define a "reference implementation" with the following platform and configuration characteristics:
- The hosts are all running UNIX® -based operating systems.
- The database is IBM Universal DB2®.
- The hardware and software requirements as defined in hardware and software requirements have been met for all systems.
- The topology consists of a single cell, comprised of three physical computer systems.
- The router is IBM® HTTP Server.
This reference implementation and the reference topology on which it is based are described in more detail later in this document. Your operating system and database might differ from those used in our reference implementation. If so, you will need to alter the details of some of the procedures that you follow; for example, command file names and database creation procedures might differ from those stated in this document. This document points out those situations where applicable.
