I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1. The deployment manager needs to be up and running.
2. The stand-alone (unmanaged) application server can be running,
    but doesn't have to be.  If it is, it will be stopped by this process.
3. Open a command prompt, and "cd" to the unmanaged AppServer
    profile "bin" directory.  For example:

    cd c:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\AppSrv00\bin

4. Execute the addNode command script (i.e., addNode.bat, or ./addNode.sh)

    If you specify no parameters, the following help is displayed:
Usage: addNode dmgr_host [dmgr_port] [-conntype <type>] [-includeapps]
           [-includebuses] [-startingport <portnumber>] [-portprops
           <qualified-filename>] [-nodeagentshortname <name>] [-nodegroupname
           <name>] [-registerservice] [-serviceusername <name>]
           [-servicepassword <password>] [-coregroupname <name>] [-noagent]
           [-statusport <port>] [-quiet] [-nowait] [-logfile <filename>]
           [-replacelog] [-trace] [-username <username>] [-password <pwd>]
           [-localusername <localusername>] [-localpassword <localpassword>]
           [-profileName <profile>] [-help]
    Execute the command, and specify (as a minimum):

    The dmgr hostname (e.g., localhost)
    If the dmgr is using a non-standard port, that too will need to be specified
    If a connection type other than SOAP needs to be used, specify/identify it
    If you want the deployed applications to be included in the Cell, add the
    "-includeapps" option.  Note, if the applications already exist in the Cell
    (e.g., on another application server), then they won't be included, since
    doing so would make a request for this application ambiguous in the cell.

Good Luck.
