This topic describes how to install and configure an additional DB2® Everyplace® Synchronization Server as part of a cluster.
These steps assume you have performed the necessary prerequisite setup. See Prerequisite setup for adding additional servers
The following instructions include instructions for AIX®, Linux®, and Windows® operating systems. You also have the option to add an additional server to an existing DB2 Everyplace Synchronization cluster using the create-clone-DB2e.rsp response file. For details, see Using configuration response files and Response file templates
The steps assume you intend to complete the installation in one attempt by completing the information on each panel and continuing to the next panel. At any point during the installation, you can select Back
to return to the previous panel or Cancel
to abort the installation. Most of the configuration parameters will be automatically taken from the existing cluster configuration.
Select Advanced Configuration Services and click Next.
Select Create Clone and click Next.
If the original install image has been removed, specify the location where the install files can be found and click Next.
- Start the configuration wizard, if it is not already running, in one of the following ways:
Note: You may need to insert the Expeditor Server DVD in the drive or manually mount the product installation media on AIX and Linux platforms.
The list of components that can be cloned are displayed. Select DB2 Everyplace Synchronization Server and click Next.
Note: You may select multiple components to clone.
Specify the fully-qualified host name of the system where you are installing Expeditor Server. This value must be a fully-qualified name registered with your Domain Name System (DNS). You cannot specify an IP address instead of a host name. Click Next.
Specify the WebSphere® Application Server profile name into which the additional server will be configured. The installation program supplies default values. If you want to use a different profile from the profile selected by the installation program, you need to update the profile name. After you specify a value, click Next.
Enter the Expeditor Server administrator name and password and click Next.
UNIX: Enter the database instance information and click Next.
Enter the database administrator password and click Next.
The database information is validated. There may be a delay when validating a remote database. The configuration summary panel is displayed next.
On the final configuration panel, click Next to start the configuration process or Cancel to exit the configuration wizard.
See Determining WebSphere Application Server configuration
for more information on determining the profile name. The installation program verifies you have the prerequisite software installed at a version level that Expeditor Server supports. The installation program also verifies that the profile is managed.
Regenerate the Web Server plugin configuration and propagate the changes to the Web Server.
