Update a group member on i5/OS

In a single server environment the WebSphere_Portal and server1 servers can be either stopped or started.

In a clustered environment stop all appservers on the system including WebSphere_Portal and server1 and then start the nodeagent and deployment manager servers before starting the following task.


Update the group member in your LDAP user registry

  1. Optional: Run...

      ConfigEngine.sh wp-query-repository -DWasPassword=password task, from the profile_root/ConfigEngine directory, to list the names and types of configured repositories.

    • Edit...

        profile_root/ConfigEngine/properties/wkplc.properties

    • Enter a value for the following parameters under the VMM LDAP group member attribute configuration heading:

    • Save changes to wkplc.properties.

    • Run...

        ConfigEngine.sh wp-update-ldap-groupmember -DWasPassword=password task, from the profile_root/ConfigEngine directory, to update the group member information for your LDAP user registry or to create the group member if it does not exist.

      • Propagate the security changes:

        Option Description
        Standalone cd profile_root/bin
        ./stopServer.sh server1 -username admin_userid -password admin_password
        ./stopServer.sh WebSphere_Portal -username admin_userid -password admin_password
        ./startServer.sh server1
        ./startServer.sh WebSphere_Portal
        Cluster cd dmgr_profile/bin
        ./stopManager.sh-username admin_userid -password admin_password
        cd profile_root/bin
        ./stopNode.sh -username admin_userid -password admin_password
        ./stopServer.sh WebSphere_Portal -username admin_userid -password admin_password
        cd dmgr_profile/bin
        ./startManager.sh
        cd profile_root/bin
        ./startNode.sh
        ./startServer.sh WebSphere_Portal

If you performed these steps after creating the clustered environment, run enable-jcr-security on the secondary node.
