You can change the metadata repository database host name
or port by modifying configuration files and then changing host name
and port values for
WebSphere® Application Server data sources to use.
Updating the database properties URL
To update the host name and port number for your metadata repository database, you specify the values in the database.properties file located on the services tier computer and run the iisAdmin -deploy command to deploy the changes.
Updating the staging repository properties URL
To update the URL for staging repository database, specify the values for host name and port number in the imam_staging_repository.properties file located on the services tier computer.
Configuring automatic client reroute
If you have a Db2® clustered or HADR configuration, configure automatic client reroute for IBM WebSphere Application Server to reconnect to the standby server smoothly. This task is required only if the host name and port change is the result of relocating the metadata repository database to a new computer, or if the alternate server host name or port has changed.
Modifying the connection properties for data sources for the metadata repository database
When you change the configuration of the active metadata repository and the staging area, you must modify the data source connection properties such as host name, port, or database, in the IBM WebSphere Application Server configuration so that the metadata repository database can be found when WebSphere Application Server starts.
Updating the installation records with the new metadata repository hostname and port
The Version.xml file contains the installation records that are used by the installation program. Updating the values in this file helps to avoid problems with future installations.
Registering data stores that are part of a newly moved metadata repository database
If you have moved your metadata repository database to a new host, and the database contains schemas other than the metadata repository and staging area, such as the operations database, then you must register these schemas again with the new metadata repository on the new host. If the metadata repository database contains only the metadata repository and staging area schemas, you do not need to complete this task.
