Installing WebSphere Application Server for Cognos Business IntelligenceAdded by IBM on February 11, 2013 | Version 1 (Original)
|Install IBM® WebSphere® Application Server Network Deployment on the computer that will host IBM Cognos® Business Intelligence, so that the server can be managed by the Deployment Manager used with IBM Connections.
About this task
node hosting the Cognos
BI server will be federated to the same dedicated Deployment Manager as your IBM
Connections deployment. Do not use a WebSphere
node that has already been federated to a different Deployment Manager.

- Install WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment as described in the WebSphere Application Server Version 7.0 information center.
This server should be installed using the Application server
profile; you will federate it to the Deployment Manager in a later task.
If you will use a server where the appropriate version of WebSphere
Application Server Network Deployment is already deployed, you do not have to install it again; just create a new Application server
profile for Cognos
Business Intelligence as follows:
IBM AIX®, Linux™
manageprofiles.sh -create -templatepath WAS_install_root/profileTemplates/default -adminUserName was_admin_name -adminPassword was_admin_password -nodeName CognosNode01
manageprofiles.bat -create -templatepath WAS_install_root\profileTemplates\default -adminUserName was_admin_name -adminPassword was_admin_password -nodeName CognosNode01
You can verify that the installation was successful by reviewing the WebSphere
Application Server log stored in: Cognos_WAS_node_profile/logs/Cognos_server_name/SystemOut.log
; for example on Windows
- On the newly installed server, set the system clock to match the time (and time zone) on the Deployment Manager’s computer.
Attention: The node’s clock must be synced to within 1 minute of the Deployment Manager’s clock to ensure that federation does not fail in a later task.
