Specifies a name for a node that is unique within the cell.
A node corresponds to a physical computer system with a distinct IP host address. The node name is usually the same as the host name for the computer.
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 name is based on the version of IP the node will be using.
Specifies the product version of the node.
The product version is the version of a WAS for managed nodes. For unmanaged nodes, on which one can define Web servers, the version displays as unknown.
- Discovery protocol
Specifies the protocol that servers use to discover the presence of other servers on this node.
The possible protocol options follow:
- User Datagram Protocol (UDP)
- Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)
Indicates the state of the node.
The state can be Started, Stopped, Unavailable, Unknown, Partial Start, Partial Stop, Not applicable, Synchronized, or Not synchronized.
