About the madconfig utility
The madconfig utility can be used to manually install MDM operational server and database components. The installation application uses the utility targets in background processes during installation.
To run any madconfig target, you must open a command-line prompt from the MDM_INSTALL_HOME/mds/scripts directory.
madconfig install_server_configtarget (where user input is a blank line where you enter your response).
C:/MDM/mds/scripts:madconfig install_server_config Buildfile: build.xml install_server_config: # # Enter WAS home: # WAS_INSTALL_HOME/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer # # Enter WAS host: # localhost # # Enter WAS port: # 8879
The utility further prompts for more WebSphere® Application Server parameters, database parameters (JDBC providers and data source in the application server), application name, messaging types to use (connection factories, queues, and topics), and JVM heap size.
–propertyfileoption. The following example shows how to use
–propertyfileto run the
install_mdm_ebatarget. This target installs the MDM Enterprise Bundle Archive (.eba) file onto an application server. The properties that are required for deployment include details of the server, the ebaID, the ebaName, the blaName (business level application name), and blaDes (business level application description).
C:/MDM/mds/scripts:madconfig –propertyfile install_mdm_eba.properties install_mdm_eba
The properties that are required by the target are read from the property file. When this option is being used, the values are provided with the exact property names as expected by the target because it can be run only when the property names are known.
