Update the context pool configuration on Linux


After configuring LDAP user registry, you may find that adjust the number of context instances concurrently maintained by the content pool in order to increase performance.

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.


To update the context pool configuration:

  1. Edit...


  2. Update the following parameters in wkplc.properties under the VMM LDAP context pool heading:

  3. Save changes to wkplc.properties.

  4. Update the context pool configuration for the LDAP user registry

      cd profile_root/ConfigEngine directory
      ./ConfigEngine.sh wp-update-ldap-contextpool -DWasPassword=password

  5. 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
    cd profile_root/bin
    ./startServer.sh WebSphere_Portal

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