A system administrator needs to install WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V8.5.5 multiple times and would like to automate the task of installing the product. The administrator wants to create a response file based on an initial installation and use this for future installations.
How can the administrator accomplish this task?
Run the command to record a response file for the package installation. This command uses the -skipInstall
Windows: IBMIM -record <responseFile> -skipInstall
Unix/Linux: ./IBMIM -record <responseFile> -skipInstall
A system administrator has created a cluster containing two servers in a same node. The administrator did not select the option Generate unique HTTP ports during the creation of the cluster members. After the cluster creation, the administrator changed the HTTP port of the second cluster member to 9081.
Testing the servers using the snoop servlet directly to the server's HTTP port, the administrator got the following error message for the second server:
How can the administrator fix this problem?
SRVE0255E: A WebGroup/Virtual Host to handle /p2pd/servlet/dispatch has not been defined.
Unable to start IBM Cognos Business Intelligence
The virtual host does not contain IBM WebSphere Port that the Application server is listening on. This may be one of several reasons.
An application contains a web services client and the application is deployed and running. A system administrator has to add a response timeout to the deployed web services client, so the call fails in a timely fashion.
Which artifact should the administrator use?
The ibm-webservicesclient-bnd.xmi deployment descriptor file contains information for the web services run time that is WebSphere product-specific. This deployment descriptor file is used with Java API for XML-based web services.
A system administrator completed a WebSphere Application Server installation by using the Installation Manager. During installation, all defaults were selected for the installation root directories and the shared resources directory. Over time, the administrator has updated the installation with various interim fixes and fix packs. The administrator notices that the shared resources directory is very large in size and grows larger each time the Installation Manager is run.
How can the administrator decrease the size and remove some of the content from the shared resources directory?
Because product payloads are cached in this directory, space requirements can grow very large over the lifetime of the product, as service updates are applied. The WebSphere Application Server product image is large, so if this content is permitted to accumulate, then this directory will grow to be many gigabytes in size over the course of multiple fix pack applications. You should never manually delete the content in this folder. Instead, during any installation or maintenance operation, you can specify the following preference to remove some of the content in this folder:
A system administrator has configured a cluster containing 40 servers. The cluster members all belong to one core group. While examining the log files, the administrator notices that the core group coordinator is consuming abnormally high amounts of memory and CPU resources.
How can the system administrator reduce the memory and CPU resource usage of the core group coordinator?
Remember that coordinator election occurs whenever the view changes. Electing a new coordinator uses a lot of resources because this process causes increased network traffic and CPU consumption. Specifying a preferred coordinator server, whenever practical, helps eliminate the need to make frequent coordinator changes.
