WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment is provided with IBM Connections.
To establish an environment with one Deployment Manager and one or more managed nodes, use the following options to determine the installation option that you should choose:
- Deployment Manager and one node on the same system
- Deployment Manager and nodes on separate systems
- Application Server only (We use this for demonstration.)
The IBM Connections installation wizard creates server instances that require each node to have an application server. Choose one of these options when installing WebSphere Application Server to ensure that each node has an application server.
