Modify z/OS location service daemon settings

We can modify the location service daemon settings in an console. Location service daemons provide the CORBA location service in support of Remote Method Invocation and Internet Inter-ORB Protocol (RMI/IIOP).

Complete the following items before starting this task:

The location service daemon is an integral component of the Remote Method Invocation and Internet Inter-ORB Protocol (RMI/IIOP) communication function for the WAS for z/OS. The daemon works with z/OS workload management to distribute RMI requests (for example enterprise bean requests) among application servers in a cell.

When a client makes a remote call to an enterprise bean, a location service daemon determines which servers are eligible to process the request. The location service daemon makes the decision with the z/OS workload management function (WLM). The daemon then routes the request to the selected server, which establishes a CORBA session with the client. Subsequent calls to the same enterprise bean flow directly over the established session.

In a cell, one location service daemon exists for each sysplex node group. A location service daemon process runs on each system that has a node in a sysplex node group. An example of a system is the z/OS operating system on a logical partition (LPAR).

We can now modify the location service daemon settings in an console.

  1. Go to the Settings page for the location service daemon to view the help page.

  2. For the console, click System Administration > Node groups > sysplex node group > z/OS location service daemon in the console navigation tree. For the job manager administrative console, click System Administration -> Job manager > z/OS Location Service in the console navigation tree. For the administrative agent console, click System Administration -> Administrative agent > z/OS Location Service in the console navigation tree.

  3. Specify the following values for the location service daemon:

    • The job name

    • The ports on which it listens

    • The IP names on which it listens

    • The start command

    • The start command arguments

    • The SSL repertoire that it uses


Results

The location service daemon settings are modified.
