Create new virtual hosts using templates with scripting

 

Overview

Some configuration object types have templates that use when you create a virtual host. You can create a new virtual host using a preexisting template or by creating a new custom template. Perform the following steps to create a new virtual host using a template:

 

Procedure

  1. Start wsadmin

  2. If you want to create a new custom template, perform the following steps:

    1. Copy and paste the following file into a new file, myvirtualhostname.xml:

      <WAS-ROOT>\config\templates\default\virtualhosts.xml
      

    2. Edit and customize the new myvirtualhostname.xml file.

    3. Place the new file in the following directory:

      <WAS-ROOT>\config\templates\custom\
      

    If you want the new custom template to appear with the list of templates, restart the deployment manager on a network deployment edition, or use the AdminConfig object reset command. For example:

    • Jacl:

      $AdminConfig reset
      

    • Jython

      AdminConfig.reset()
      

    The administrative console does not support the use of custom templates. The new template that you create will not be visible in the administrative console panels.

  3. Use the AdminConfig object listTemplates command to list available templates, for example:

    Example output

    default_host(templates/default:virtualhosts.xml#VirtualHost_1)
    my_host(templates/custom:virtualhostname.xml#VirtualHost_1)
    

  4. Create a new virtual host. For example:

    • Jacl:

      set cell [$AdminConfig getid /Cell:NetworkDeploymentCell/]
      set vtempl [$AdminConfig listTemplates VirtualHost my_host]
      $AdminConfig createUsingTemplate VirtualHost $cell {{name newVirHost}} $vtempl
      $AdminConfig save
      

    • Jython

      cell = AdminConfig.getid('/Cell:NetworkDeploymentCell/')
      vtempl = AdminConfig.listTemplates('VirtualHost', 'my_host')
      AdminConfig.createUsingTemplate('VirtualHost', cell, [['name', 'newVirHost']], vtempl)
      

  5. In a network deployment environment only, synchronize the node.
