Use the addNode command to add a standalone node into a cell. The addNode command does the following:

  1. Copies the base WAS cell configuration to a new cell structure. This new cell structure matches the structure of deployment manager.

  2. Creates a new node agent definition for the node that the cell incorporates.

  3. Sends commands to the deployment manager to add the documents from the new node to the cell repository.

  4. Performs the first configuration synchronization for the new node, and verifies that this node is synchronized with the cell.

  5. Launches the node agent process for the new node.

  6. Updates the setupCmdLine.bat or setupCmdline.sh files and the wsadmin.properties file to point to the new cell.

  7. After federating the node, the addNode command backs up the plugin-cfg.xml file from...

    <install_root>/config/cells

    ...to...

    config/backup/base/cells

  8. The addNode command regenerates a new plugin-cfg.xml file at the Deployment Manger and the nodeSync operation copies the files to the node level.
