Configure cells



Search Tips   |   Advanced Search



When you created a deployment manager profile, a cell was created. A cell provides a way to group one or more nodes of your Network Deployment product. You probably will not need to re-configure the cell. To view information about and manage a cell, use the settings page for a cell.



  1. Access the settings page for a cell. Click...

    System Administration | Cell

    ...from the navigation tree of the administrative console.

  2. If the protocol that the cell uses to retrieve information from a network is not appropriate for your system, select the appropriate protocol. By default, a cell uses Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). If you want the cell to use User Datagram Protocol, select UDP from the drop-down list for Cell Discovery Protocol on the settings page for the cell. It is unlikely that you will need to change the cell's protocol configuration from TCP.

  3. Click Custom Properties and define any name-value pairs needed by your deployment manager.

  4. When you installed the WAS Network Deployment product, a node was added to the cell. You can add additional nodes on the Node page. Click Nodes to access the Node page, which you use to manage nodes.

    Note: Both Internet Protocol V4 (IPv4) and Internet Protocol V6 (IPv6) are now supported by WebSphere Application Server, but there are restrictions that apply to using both IPv4 and IPv6 in the same cell. Note that when you add a node to a cell, the format in which you specify the host name is based on the version of IP the node will be using. For details, see IP version considerations for cells.
