Web server name Logical name for the Web server.
Type Vendor of the Web server. The default value is IBM HTTP Server.The options for the type of Web servers are:

  • IHS
  • IIS

Port The port from which to ping the status of the Web server. This field is required.

Use the WAS admin console to check if the Web server is started by sending a ping to attempt to connect to the Web server port that is defined. In most cases the port is 80. If we have a firewall between the Web servers and appservers, you will not use port 80 on the firewall between the two systems. In most cases, the port will be different, such as 9082 or 9443. You should set the alternate ports for the Web server using the WAS admin console, then set that port to the Web server to listen on, in addition to the typical port 80 and 443.

Installation path Enter the fully qualified path where the Web server is installed.

This field is required if we are using IBM HTTP Server. For all other Web Servers, this field is not required. If we enable any admin function for non-IBM HTTP Server Web servers, the installation path will be necessary.

Configuration file name There are two ways to view or modify the contents of the configuration file:

  1. Click Edit to view the configuration file. You will be able to make modifications from this view. This is valid for IBM HTTP Server only.

  2. Click Configuration file under Additional properties. You will be able to make modifications from this view. This is valid for IBM HTTP Server only.
Service name Specifies the Microsoft Windows operating system name for the Web server. The name is the service name and we can find it by opening the General properties tab of the Web server service name. Microsoft Windows operating systems only
