WebSphere Application Server installation worksheet
Use the IBM® WebSphere® Application Server configuration worksheet to identify parameters for the application server that is used to host your MDM operational server.
The parameters that are listed in the following table equate to prompts or fields that you see in IBM Installation Manager.
|Deployment type||Specify the deployment type and note the IBM
WebSphere Application Server profile
name. Your options are Network Deployment Edition or Base
Network Deployment is used for server or cluster installations. A base deployment is typically used in workstation or demonstration installations.
If you choose
Network Deployment, the installer runs a sequence of commands against
WebSphere Application Server deployment
manager process to configure application servers and deploy applications.
The deployment manager and node agents must be configured and running
before the deployment can proceed. For example, use a profile name
If you select Network Deployment, the installer can also run against an IBM WebSphere Application Server cluster. The installation program automatically detects the cluster. If the cluster is configured, the default is to deploy the applications on a cluster. You can select to deploy the applications on a single server instead.
If you choose Base, then the operational server is
deployed on server1 of the IBM
WebSphere Application Server Base.
The installer runs a sequence of commands against server1 to configure
the application server and deploy applications. Make sure that server1
is running before you proceed with the deployment. For example, use
a profile name of
|IBM WebSphere Application Server home||Specify the fully qualified directory in which IBM WebSphere Application Server is installed. The default on Linux® and UNIX is /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer. The default on Microsoft Windows is C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer.|
|IBM WebSphere Application Server profile home||If you are using a base deployment, specify the fully qualified path of the application server profile home directory. The default on Linux and UNIX is /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles. The default on Microsoft Windows is C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles.|
|Federate into an existing Deployment Manager||If you want to federate a newly created managed node into an existing deployment manager, select the Federate into an existing Deployment Manager option.|
|Deployment Manager profile name||Provide the deployment manager profile name. Ensure that the name is not already in use. This is only applicable if the deployment type is Network Deployment and the Federate into an existing Deployment Manager option is selected.|
|Deployment Manager profile home||Specify the fully qualified path of the deployment manager profile home directory.|
|Host name||Identify the fully qualified address of the
host on which IBM
WebSphere Application Server is
installed. The default is
|SOAP port||Identify the SOAP port of the deployment manager
on the remote computer, if you are using remote deployment. The default
|User name||Identify the IBM WebSphere Application Server user name. The user must have administrative privileges.|
|Password||The IBM WebSphere Application Server user password.|
|Cell||Specify the IBM
WebSphere Application Server cell
where you want to deploy InfoSphere®
If you have IBM WebSphere Application Server already installed and configured, you can click Retrieve Host Details during the installation process and have IBM Installation Manager retrieve the information for Cell, Node, and Server.
|Node||Specify the IBM
WebSphere Application Server cell
where you want to deploy InfoSphere
After you select the cell in IBM Installation Manager, all of the nodes within that cell are available in the list.
|Server||Specify the server where you want to deploy InfoSphere
After you select the node in IBM Installation Manager, all of the servers that are available for that node show in the list.
If you want to create a new server for deployment, you can specify the new name on the configuration panel and it is created in IBM WebSphere Application Server during the installation process.
|Managed node profile name||Provide the managed node profile name. Ensure that the name is not already in use. This is only applicable if the deployment type is Network Deployment.|
|Managed node profile home||Specify the fully qualified path of the managed node profile home directory.|
|Install MDM application on cluster||If you have an existing WebSphere Application Server cluster, this option is available on the configuration panel. Select this option if you want to install the InfoSphere MDM application in a clustered environment.|
|Cluster||If you are installing in a clustered environment, select the cluster where you want to deploy your applications.|
