To set up the backend application servers:
1. Install and setup WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment
- Install WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment. For detailed installation instructions, see Installing the product and additional software in the WebSphere Application Server information center.
- During installation, the installer will ask you which profile you want to create on this system. Select deployment manager Cell (deployment manager and federated application server).
- Install the latest WebSphere Application Server fix pack. For more information on WebSphere Application Server fix packs, see the Fix list for WebSphere Application Server Version 6.0.2.
- Verify that Deployment Manager is running by issuing the following command:
ps -fea|grep dmgr
The system should respond by displaying the JVM processID that handles the Deployment Manager.
- If the Deployment Manager is not running, issue the following command:
The Deployment Manager must be running when you set up the servers.
2. Create a managed node
Run the Profile Management Tool. Type /usr/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/ProfileManagement/pmt.sh
on the command line to start it.
1. Create a Custom Profile. Type /usr/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/manageprofiles.sh -create -templatePath /usr/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profileTemplates/default -profileName cslpar2Node1
2. Go to the bin of the profile you just created. Type /usr/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/cslpar2Node1/bin
and federate the profile specifying the server that is running Deployment Manager. For example, if cslpar1 is running the Deployment Manager process and cslpar2 is the node that you just created, then run the following command:
Perform this procedure on every application server.
3. Install WebSphere Process Server
For detailed installation instructions, see Installing and configuring WebSphere® Process Server
in the WebSphere Process Server information center
You can substitute other supported backend applications for Process Server, such as FileNet or WebSphere Content Manager.
4. Setup the Process Server cluster
1. On the Deployment Manager system, login to the Deployment Manager console.
2. Click System Administration > Nodes and verify that the application nodes are visible.
3. Click Servers > Clusters.
4. Click Add and define the cluster name (for example, Process_Cluster).
5. Define a new cluster member for the managed node you setup on the first process server.
6. Define a second cluster member for the managed node you setup on the first process server.
7. Define a third cluster member for the managed node you setup on the second process server.
8. Define a fourth cluster member for the managed node you setup on the second process server.
9. Click Finish and save your changes.
5. Associate the Process Server to the cluster
1. On the Deployment Manager system, within WebSphere® Application Server click Enterprise Applications > "YourProcessApps" > Manage Modules.
2. Select the check box for your process server module.
3. Select the cluster and servers you want to associate with the application. For example, Process_Cluster, Process_Server_1 and Process__Server_2.
4. Click OK and save your changes.
6. Install DB2 Enterprise Server Edition
For detailed installation instructions, see Installing information management software
in the DB2® information center
