Register or unregister with job manager settings

Use this page to either register a node to a job manager or unregister a node from a job manager. The node can be a deployment manager or a node registered to an administrative agent.

We can use the administrative agent console to register or unregister a node with the job manager. The node that you register with the job manager is already registered to the administrative agent. For example, click System administration > Administrative agent > Nodes. Select Register with Job Manager to register a node with a job manager or Unregister from a Job Manager to unregister a node from a job manager.

We can use the dmgr console to register or unregister a deployment manager with the job manager. Click System administration > Deployment manager > Job managers. Select Register with Job Manager to register a deployment manager with a job manager or Unregister from a Job Manager to unregister a deployment manager from a job manager.

To see what nodes are registered with a job manager, view the Targets page on a job manager console or deployment manager console. Click Jobs > Targets.


Managed node name

A required setting that specifies the name of the managed node. For a deployment manager, the managed node name is the name of the deployment manager node, usually hostCellManager01.


Alias

An optional setting that specifies the alias of the managed node to enroll. Specify an alias if the managed node name is in use by another node.


Host name

An optional setting that specifies the host name to use to identify the job manager. The default value is localhost.


Port

An optional setting that specifies the port number for the console from which to run jobs. If security is enabled, use the secure port number. If security is disabled, use the unsecure port number. The default is 9943, the default secure port number for a job manager console. The default unsecure port number for a job manager console is 9960. If no port number is specified, 9943 is used.

To use the Jobs choices in a job manager console, specify a secure or unsecure port number for the job manager console. For example, if the URL for the job manager console is http://myhost:9961/ibm/console/, then specify 9961.

If we are registering a deployment manager with a job manager and want to use Jobs menu choices in the deployment manager console, specify a secure or unsecure port number for the deployment manager console. For example, specify the port number currently shown in the URL for the browser, which is displaying the dmgr console. If the URL is http://myhost:9065/ibm/console/, then specify 9065.


User name

User name to log into the job manager when security is enabled.


Password

Password to log into the job manager. This setting is required when the user name setting is required.


Confirm password

Password a second time. This setting is required when a user name and a password are required.
