Step by step procedures to redeploy MDM EBA
1. Detach the cba from the MDM EBA
2. Stop ALL WebSphere processes associated with the node (JVMs and nodeagent) and clear the contents of the following directories
3. To clear the OSGi class cache:
For UNIX platforms, run the following script in each profile:
For Windows platforms, run the following script in each profile:
For UNIX and z/OS platforms, run the following script:
For Windows platforms, run the following script:
And clear the following directory contents:
where WinUsers_home is either C:\Documents and Settings\DefaultUser OR C:\Users depending on your current version of Windows.
1. You should not delete the cache while any of the JVM's are running and using the cache. The server has to be stopped before clearing the cache.
2. You must be logged in as the user who started WebSphere Application Server.
3. For Windows the clearClassCache.bat may not work if you are using Windows Services. Please follow these steps:
- Clear the following directory contents:
- For Windows XP/Windows 2003:
C:\Documents and Settings\DefaultUser\Local Settings\ ApplicationData\javasharedresources\
- For Window Vista/Windows 7/Windows 2008:
4. Redeploy EBA with the following steps;
Step A: Edit the Application Manifest of the MDM Server EBA
a. Locate the folder in which the installer placed the installable components of InfoSphere MDM. It’s called “InstallableApps” folder. Locate the eba file. It’s called com.ibm.mdm.hub.server.app.eba.
c. Within com.ibm.mdm.hub.server.app.eba, locate the Application.MF file.
d. Edit the Application.MF file, change Application-SymbolicName value in the new EBA file under /META-INF/APPLICATION.MF to match the value of appsoftware table in customer's DB. Then, add the following lines to the bottom of the file:
Step B: Detach Any Customization CBAs from MDM
a. In WebSphere Application Server Admin Console, Navigate to Applications --> Application Types --> Business Level Applications, and select the MDM-Operational-server-EBA-E001. Then select com.ibm.mdm.hub.server.app-xxx.eba. See below:
d. Return to the previous screen and select Update To Latest Deployment.
f. Click OK, then click Save on the following page.
Step C: Remove the Old EBA from the Business Level Application
a. In the WebSphere Application Server Admin Console navigate to Applications --> Application Types --> Business Level Applications. Place a check mark next to MDM-operational-server-EBA-xxx where xxx is a number or a name, then click Stop.
b. After the application has stopped, click on the application as a hyperlink. This will display the following screen:
c. Put a checkmark next to com.ibm.mdm.hub.server.app-xxx.eba and click Delete.
Step D: Delete the old EBA as an Asset
a. Navigate to Applications --> Application Types --> Assets
b. Put a Check next to com.ibm.mdm.hub.server.app.eba and click Delete.
Step E: Re-Install the New (Revised) EBA
a. From in the WebSphere Application Server Admin Console navigate to Applications --> Application Types --> Assets.
b. Click on Import and navigate to the location of the EBA file you updated in step 1.
Step F: Attach the newly imported EBA file to the Business Level Application
a. Navigate to Applications --> Application Types --> Business Level Applications and click on MDM-operational-server-EBA-xxx as a hyperlink.
b. Click to add an asset to the business level application:
c. Click on the radio button next to the new EBA you just imported:
d. Click Continue.
e. Follow the steps in the Wizard as illustrated below.
f. Map the security roles and users and groups:
h. Map Data Sources
Step G: Attach CBA to MDM
a. In WebSphere Application Server Admin Console, navigate to Applications --> Application Types --> Business Level Applications, and select the MDM-Operational-server-EBA-E001. Then select com.ibm.mdm.hub.server.app_E001-0001.eba. See below:
b. Select Extensions for this composition unit.
c. Click Add.
e. Update the running bundles:
5. Start the application server and ensure the MDM EBA is an and running and there are no startup errors in the logs.
IBM Master Data Management (MDM) on Cloud helps businesses gain a trusted view of data in a hybrid computing environment. Benefit from the same powerful capabilities of IBM InfoSphere Master Data Management, with the extensibility of cloud deployment models for speed, scalability and cost-effectiveness.
Improved time to value
Robust Backup Infrastructure
You may try MDM on the cloud on IBM Bluemix.
A bit is described as boolean value to any target (in this case, CDC zos)
The only valid mapping on CDC zos for boolean is to a binary type
field. (BINARY, (VAR)CHAR FOR BIT or a (VAR)CHAR field that has been
overridden to binary) Valid mappings for boolean are to boolean,
binary or BLOB. DB2/zos does not support boolean.
