Node installation properties
Use this page to view read-only installation properties for this node. These properties provide information about the capabilities of the node that are collected during product installation time, such as the operating system name, architecture and version, or WebSphere Application Server product levels that are installed on the node. To view this console page, click System administration > Nodes > node > Node installation properties.
Information about a node, such as operating system platform and product features, is maintained in the configuration repository in the form of properties. As product features are installed on a node, new property settings are added.
WebSphere Application Server system management uses the managed object metadata properties as follows:
- To display the node version in the console
- To ensure that new configuration types or attributes are not created or set on older release nodes
- To ensure that new resource types are not created on old release nodes
- To ensure that new applications are not installed on old release nodes because the old run time cannot support the new applications
