Configure the catalog service in WAS
Catalog service processes can run in WAS. The server life cycle in WAS determines when the catalog service starts and stops.
- Choose one or more WAS processes to augment with the WebSphere eXtreme Scale profile.
If you want the catalog service to start automatically in WAS ND on the deployment manager, install WebSphere eXtreme Scale on the deployment manager node and augment the deployment manager profile.
- Configure server properties files for the WAS processes and add to the class path for the node.
- Configure a catalog service domain.
The catalog service domain is a group of catalog servers within the environment.
- Start the WAS processes that are hosting the catalog servers.
