Recover managed node settings

Use this page to recover an existing managed node of a deployment manager cell. The node must be at the deployment manager level.

To view this dmgr console page, click System administration > Nodes > Add Node > Recover an existing node > Next.

Before using this page to recover an existing node that is no longer functioning, create a new profile to replace the damaged node and give it the same profile and node names. Then, use this page to replace the damaged node in the cell with the new node.

The new node, or application server, to use to replace the damaged one must be running.

Instead of using this page to recover a node, we can run the addNode command with the -asExistingNode option from a command line at the bin directory of the stopped application server profile. The name of the node must match the name of the node where you run addNode with the option. Other addNode options for node configuration are incompatible with the -asExistingNode option.


Host

Host name or IP address of the node to add to the cell. The application server process must be running at the IP address identified by the host field.

The value can be an IP address, a domain name server (DNS) name that resolves to an IP address, or the word localhost if the application server is running on the same machine as the deployment manager.

Information Value
Data type String
Default None


JMX connector type

Specifies the JMX connectors that communicate with the product when you invoke a scripting process.

Select from one of these JMX connector types:


JMX connector port

Port number of the JMX connector on the instance to add to the cell. The default SOAP connector port is 8880.

We can find the port number under Ports on the Configuration tab of the server setting page. Click Servers > Server Types > WebSphere application servers > server_name > Ports.

Also, we can find the port number in the serverindex.xml file in the profiles/application_server_profile_name/config/cells/cell_name/nodes/node directory.

Information Value
Date type Integer
Default 8880


Application server user name

Administration user name that connects to the remote Application Server whose node is being added to the cell.

The Application Server user name and password are used to connect to the Application Server and start the add node process at the Application Server. The Application Server user name and password settings always display. Specify values for them if security is enabled at the Application Server. Otherwise, leave them blank.


Application server password

Password for the Application Server user name that you supply.


dmgr user name

dmgr administration user name that the Application Server uses when connecting to the deployment manager to add its node to the cell.

The deployment manager user name and password settings display only if security is enabled at the deployment manager. The deployment manager user name and password are required if their settings display.


dmgr password

Password for the deployment manager user name that you supply.


Config URL

Security settings that enable a remote application server to communicate with the deployment manager. The default is a properties file with encoded passwords.

To view this setting, security must be enabled.
