Tinkering with WebSphere Application Server v9 - Part Two

Following on from my earlier post: -

I've made much better progress with WAS 9, which is nice :-)

So here's my installation response file: -


<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>

from which I installed the IBM Installation Manager (IIM), WAS and Java binaries: -

/tmp/im/tools/imcl -input installWAS9.rsp -acceptLicense
Installed to the /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse directory.
Installed to the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer directory.
Installed to the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer directory.

and then verified: -

/opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl listInstalledPackages -long -features

/opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse : : IBM® Installation Manager : 1.8.5 : 
/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer : : IBM SDK, Java Technology Edition, Version 8 : : 
/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer : : IBM WebSphere Application Server  : : ejbdeploy,embeddablecontainer,samples,thinclient


Name                  IBM WebSphere Application Server
ID                    BASE
Build Level           gm1621.04
Build Date            5/26/16
Architecture          x86-64 (64 bit)

                      Embeddable EJB container
                      Sample applications
                      Stand-alone thin clients and resource adapters


before creating a standard application-server profile: -

/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/ -create -profileName AppSrv01 -nodeName localhostNode01 -hostName localhost -adminUserName wasadmin -cellName localhostNode01Cell -enableAdminSecurity true -serverName server1 -profilePath /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrv01 -templatePath /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profileTemplates/default -applyPerfTuningSetting standard -adminPassword passw0rd

INSTCONFSUCCESS: Success: Profile AppSrv01 now exists. Please consult /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrv01/logs/AboutThisProfile.txt for more information about this profile.

from which I started the server1 instance: -

/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrv01/bin/ server1

ADMU0116I: Tool information is being logged in file
ADMU0128I: Starting tool with the AppSrv01 profile
ADMU3100I: Reading configuration for server: server1
ADMU3200I: Server launched. Waiting for initialization status.
ADMU3000I: Server server1 open for e-business; process id is 12356

and then ran the Installation Verification Test (IVT): -

/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrv01/bin/ server1 AppSrv01

Server name is:server1
Profile name is:AppSrv01
Profile home is:/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrv01
Profile type is:default
Cell name is:localhostNode01Cell
Node name is:localhostNode01
Current encoding is:UTF-8
Server port number is:9080
IVTL0010I: Connecting to the localhost WebSphere Application Server on port: 9080

IVTL0040I: 3 errors/warnings are detected in the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrv01/logs/server1/SystemOut.log file
IVTL0070I: The Installation Verification Tool verification succeeded.
IVTL0080I: The installation verification is complete.

ending with a spot of functional testing: -

and a bit of remote admin: -


Realm/Cell Name: <default>
Username: wasadmin
 WASX7209I: Connected to process "server1" on node localhostNode01 using SOAP connector;  The type of process is: UnManagedProcess
WASX7031I: For help, enter: "print"
wsadmin>print AdminTask.listNodes()

before shutting down the JVM: -

/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrv01/bin/ server1 -user wasadmin -password passw0rd

ADMU0116I: Tool information is being logged in file
ADMU0128I: Starting tool with the AppSrv01 profile
ADMU3100I: Reading configuration for server: server1
ADMU3201I: Server stop request issued. Waiting for stop status.
ADMU4000I: Server server1 stop completed.

Next, I'll be integrating with DB2 and MQ, before deploying a business application stack such as IBM Operational Decision Manager to WAS 9 ….

Thank you! this is very helpful post... i was stuck from 2 days to install websphere..
This post made it with ease... thank you! :)

Saurav Verma said...

Can you please write a blog for how to uninstall these all packages? It will be really helpful like this too..

Dave Hay said...

Hi Saurav, thanks for the comments. The easiest way to uninstall packages such as WAS is to use Installation Manager.

You can either use the GUI ( IBMIM ) or the command-line ( imcl ).

As an example, this will uninstall EVERYTHING apart from IM itself: -

/opt/ibm/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl uninstallAll

Cheers, Dave
