Update the group membership configuration on AIX

When you configure your LDAP user registry, a group membership is automatically created. You may need to adjust the group membership configuration if you notice high loads on the LDAP server and/or long response times on authentication requests.

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.

Perform the following steps to update the group membership configuration:

  1. Edit...

      profile_root/ConfigEngine/properties/wkplc.properties

  2. Update the following parameters in wkplc.properties under the VMM LDAP group member config heading:

  3. Save changes to wkplc.properties.

  4. Run...

      ./ConfigEngine.sh wp-create-ldap-groupconfig -DWasPassword=password

    from the profile_root/ConfigEngine directory, to update the group membership for the LDAP user registry.

  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
    ./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.
