Part of the setup involves setting up a Resource Provider/URL using Java Naming Directory Interface (JNDI). Having set it up in the WAS administration console, I wanted to see whether it appeared within the JNDI namespace.
For many years, WebSphere Application Server has had the command: -
which, on my Linux box, I can run as follows: -
However, this fails with an exception: -
Getting the initial context
ERROR: Could not get the initial context or unable to look up the starting context. Exiting.
Exception received: javax.naming.ServiceUnavailableException: A communication failure occurred while attempting to obtain an initial context with the provider URL: "corbaloc:iiop:localhost:2809". Make sure that any bootstrap address information in the URL is correct and that the target name server is running. A bootstrap address with no port specification defaults to port 2809.
This is because the command looks for the default JNDI bootstrap listening on port 2809 ( corbaloc:iiop:localhost:2809 ) whereas, on my server ( running WebSphere Portal Server 220.127.116.11 on WebSphere Application Server 18.104.22.168 ), the bootstrap is listening on port 10031.
Therefore, I needed to run the command as follows: -
./dumpNameSpace.sh -url corbaloc:iiop:localhost:10031 > /root/dumpNameSpace.out
I chose to create an output file, in order that I can go and search for the appropriate JNDI variable
