Introduction: Cell-wide settings
The configuration data for WAS is stored in XML files. The XML files exist in one of several directories in the configuration repository tree.
The directory in which a configuration file exists determines its scope, or how broadly or narrowly that data applies. Files in an individual server directory apply to that specific server only. Files in a node-level directory apply to every server on that node. Files in the cell directory apply to every server on every node within the entire cell.
Cell-wide settings are configuration files in the cell directory. The files are replicated to every node in the cell. Several different configuration settings apply to the entire cell. These settings include the definition of virtual hosts, shared libraries, and any variables that you want consistent throughout the entire cell.
