Configure WAS after installation
- Start the First steps console
- Click Installation verification
The installation verification test starts the deployment manager process named dmgr and runs several tests to verify that the dmgr process can start without error.
- Click Profile creation wizard on the First steps console to create an Application Server profile.
- Start the First steps console by selecting the check box on the last panel of the Profile creation wizard.
This particular First steps console belongs to the Application Server profile that you just created. Each profile has its own First steps console.
- Click Installation verification on the First steps console.
The installation verification test starts the new Application Server process named server1 and runs several tests to verify that the server1 process can start without error.
- Federate the Application Server into the deployment manager cell.
If both server processes are running, use the administrative console of the deployment manager to add the Application Server node into the cell.
Point your browser at http://localhost:9060/ibm/console for example, to start the administrative console. Or start it from the First steps console of the deployment manager profile.
Log in and click System administration > Nodes > Add Node and follow the wizard to add the node into the cell. Use localhost for the Host field if both processes are on the same machine. The SOAP port for the Application Server node is 8880 unless you changed the port during profile creation.
If the deployment manager is running, use the addNode command instead. See addNode command.
- Optional: Click Profile creation wizard on the First steps console to create a custom profile.
Verify that the deployment manager is running. The Profile creation wizard can federate the custom node for you if the deployment manger is running.
Supply the host name and the SOAP port for the deployment manager while creating the custom profile.
Choose to federate the custom node into the deployment manager cell. A custom profile must be part of a cell.
Use the deployment manager to customize the node at your leisure. Add servers, add clusters, and install applications on the node, for example.
