Configuring the Web GUI in silent mode

You can configure the Web GUI silently. This configuration method is useful if you want identical configurations on multiple workstations. Silent configuration requires a properties file that defines the Web GUI configuration.

Before you begin

You must have Jazz® for Service Management installed. For more information, see http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSEKCU/welcome.
You must be in omnibus_webgui/bin directory to run the commands documented in this section. For example:
cd omnibus_webgui/bin
<JazzSM_profile>/bin/ws_ant.sh configureOS

About this task

The properties file OMNIbusWebGUI.properties is included in the Web GUI installation directory, for example <WEBGUI_HOME>/bin/OMNIbusWebGUI.properties.

Procedure

  1. Change directory to the directory containing the OMNIbusWebGUI.properties file.
  2. Edit the OMNIbusWebGUI.properties file as required.
  3. Run the silent mode post-configuration script:
    • For Windows operating system <JazzSM_profile>\bin\ws_ant.bat
    • For Linux operating system For UNIX operating system <JazzSM_profile>/bin/ws_ant.sh
    Use one or more of the following options when you run the command:
    configureOS
    Use this option if you want to configure the Object Server for Web GUI:
    • Register of VMM_NCOS.
    • Configure default user repository.
    • Create/Update data source file.
    • Restart server.
    resetVMM
    Use this option if you want to reset Virtual Member Manager:
    • Configure file based as default user repository.
    configureVMM
    Use this option if you want to configure VMM:
    • Register of VMM_NCOS.
    • Configure default user repository.
    restartServer
    Use this option if you want to restart the server:
    • Stop server.
    • Start server.
    The following is a basic example of the command to configure Web GUI in silent mode:
    <JazzSM_profile>/bin/ws_ant.sh configureOS

What to do next

Verify that the Web GUI is re-configured.
