Domain bootstrap address settings

Use this page to specify the bootstrap address host and port of the deployment manager containing the backup cluster. Specify a value for the Host and Port fields and configure a core group bridge before we can use the backup cluster function.

When you start the deployment manager, the operating system uses the host and port values specified on the Configuration tab for the bootstrap address. If we need to change the host or port while the deployment manager is running, specify new values on the Runtime tab. Any values specified on this tab take affect as soon as they are saved. However, if you stop the deployment manager and then restart it, the values on the Runtime tab revert to the values specified on the Configuration tab when the deployment manager restarts. To view this console page, click Servers > Clusters > WebSphere application server clusters > cluster_name > Backup cluster > Domain bootstrap address.
