About this task
During this task you will edit the following files; click the topic titles below to see details on each file. You may want to open each topic in a new browser tab or window so you can keep it open for reference:
- Back up the console.properties and productConfig.properties files:
- Navigate to the Community Server's Sametime console directory:
Make back-up copies (using different names) of the console.properties and productConfig.properties files.
- AIX, Linux, Solaris: The console directory is under the Community Server data directory; for example: /opt/IBM/domino85/notesdata/console
- Windows: The console directory is under the Domino® directory; for example: C:\Lotus\Domino\console
Update the following values in the console.properties file and save the file.
Table 1. console.properties settings
Verify that the settings in the productConfig.properties file are correct, modifying them as needed before saving and closing the file.
|SSCHostName||Provide the fully qualified host name of the Sametime System Console server.|
|SSCHTTPPort||Specify the HTTP port used for the Sametime System Console server if SSL is not enabled and the value for SSCSSLEnabled is "false." |
To determine the correct HTTP port, open the AboutThisProfile.txt file for the Sametime System Console Application Server Profile and use the setting specified for the "HTTP transport port." The default profile name is STSCAppProfile.
For example, on Windows the file is stored at: C:/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppServerProfile/logs/AboutThisProfile.txt
|SSCUserName||Enter the IBM WebSphere® Application Server User ID that you created when you installed Sametime System Console. The default is wasadmin.|
|SSCPassword||Enter the WebSphere Application Server password associated with the SSCUserName.|
|SSCSSLEnabled||Change this value to "true" to connect to the Sametime System Console using a secure connection.|
|SSCHTTPSPort||Specify the HTTPS port used by the Sametime System Console server if SSCSSLEnabled is set to "true."|
Start the Sametime Community Server.
Now register the server:
Only the required values in this file are listed here:
Table 2. productConfig.properties settings
|DepName||Provide a descriptive name for your deployment. It must be a unique deployment name on the Sametime System Console. |
|NodeHostName ||Provide the fully qualified host name for the Community Server that is being registered.|
- Run the registerSTServerNode registration utility from the /console directory.
- AIX, Linux, Solaris: registerSTServerNode.sh
- Windows: registerSTServerNode.bat
The utility registers the server, generating a log file called ConsoleUtility.log and storing it in the console/logs directory. If the registration is successful, a console.pid file will be added.
