Add managed node settings
A managed node is a node with an application server and a node agent that belongs to a deployment manager cell. Use this page to add an application server node to a deployment manager cell.
To view this dmgr console page, click System administration > Nodes > Add Node > Managed node > Next .
Specifies connection information for WebSphere Application Server.
Host name or IP address of the node to add to the cell. A WebSphere Application Server instance must be running on this machine.
Information Value Data type String Default None
- JMX connector type
Specifies the JMX connectors that communicate with the WAS when you invoke a scripting process.
Select from one of these JMX connector types:
Use when the Application Server connects to a SOAP server.
- Remote Method Invocation (RMI)
Use when the Application Server connects to an RMI server.
- JMX connector port
Port number of the JMX connector on the instance to add to the cell. The default SOAP connector port is 8880.
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
Deployment manager 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.
Select from the following settings to further specify characteristics when adding a managed node to a cell.
- Include applications
Copies the applications installed on the remote instance into a cell. If the applications to copy have the same name as the applications that currently exist in the cell, the Application Server does not copy the applications.
- Include buses
Whether to move the bus configuration at the node to the deployment manager.
- Start port
Port numbers for the node agent process.
Information Value Use default
Whether to use the default node agent port numbers. The topic Port number settings in WebSphere Application Server versions provides a list of all of the default port numbers.
Allows you to specify the starting port number in the Port number field. WebSphere Application Server administration assigns the port numbers in order from the starting port number. For example, if specified 9950, the administration program configures the node agent ports as 9950, 9951, 9952, and so on.
- Core Group
Specifies the group to which we can add a cluster or node agent. By default, clusters or node agents are added to the DefaultCoreGroup group.
Select from one of the core groups if a list is displayed. The list displays if a core group in addition to the default core group exists.
- Node group
Specifies the group to which we can add the node. By default, nodes are added to the DefaultNodeGroup group.
