Default application server profiles
The default WebSphere Application Server profile provides the necessary configuration files for starting and managing the application server that it contains. Become familiar with the cell, node, servers, applications and ports for the default profile.
The name of the default WebSphere Application Server profile is default. The default profile is contained under the following directory structure:
This article describes the cell, node, servers, applications and ports for the default profile.
Each profile contains the following general properties:
- Profile name
- Cell name
- The host name of the server, for example, MYISERIES. The cell name is case-sensitive.
- Node name
- The host name of the server, for example, MYISERIES. The node name is case-sensitive.
- Application server name
- server1. The application server name is case-sensitive.
The server1 application server includes these applications:
- The console application
- Use the console application to configure and manage the application server, enterprise applications, and other WebSphere Application Server resources.
- The DefaultApplication example application
- Use the DefaultApplication exmple which contains the snoop, hello, and hitcount examples, to quickly verify the application server configuration.
- The installation verification application (ivtApp)
- Use the ivtApp application to run the ivt Qshell script and verify the application server configuration.
The default profile is configured to use the ports listed in the Port number settings article in the information center. To change any of these ports, run the chgwassvr script from Qshell:
app_server_root/bin/chgwassvr -server server1 options
where options specifies the parameters for the port to change. For example, to change the console port to 9091, run the following command:
app_server_root/bin/chgwassvr -server server1 -admin 9091
For more information about the script, see the article on the chgwassvr command in the information center. Potential port conflicts with other versions or editions of WAS are noted where appropriate.
To display information such as node name, ports used, servers, and installed applications for the default profile, run the dspwasinst script from Qshell. For more information, see the article on the dspwasinst command in the information center.
