® Portal product documentation and the Readme provide detailed information about installing WebSphere
Portal in a cluster. Refer to Technotes for information about required WebSphere
Use this topic, in conjunction with the Cluster considerations
topic in the WebSphere
Portal product documentation, to install and configure an Mobile Portal Accelerator cluster (horizontal or vertical).
A horizontal cluster is defined as a cluster where the members are located on separate dedicated servers; a vertical cluster is where the members are located on the same server.
This topic assumes the same topology referenced in the Installing
topics in the WebSphere
Portal product documentation, namely:
- DM01 - the Deployment Manager node
- WP01 on the primary node - the first WebSphere Portal instance in the cell
- WP02 on the secondary node - the second WebSphere Portal instance in the cell (horizontal or vertical)
Installing the deployment manager
To install the deployment manager (DM01), follow the deployment manager installation instructions in the Preparing the WebSphere Application Server Deployment Manager
topic for your operating system in the WebSphere
Portal product documentation.
After installing the deployment manager, you can then install a Mobile Portal Accelerator cluster (horizontal or vertical).
Installing Mobile Portal Accelerator
You can choose from two approaches when installing a IBM
Mobile Portal Accelerator cluster (horizontal or vertical): on a WebSphere
Portal node not managed by a deployment manager—creating a new cluster, and to an existing WebSphere
Detailed information about these approaches are contained in the sections that follow.
