How to change the Websphere Apllication Server name

Hi,

I am trying to do a silent installation of Standalone WebSphere Application Server V6.1 on windows 2003 server.

However, in the WAS response file I couldn't find the  field where I can provide the name of the websphere application server. Because, after the installation it creates an Application Server by name "server1".

So, I would like to give the desired name of the application server while installing the standalone WAS.

Moreover, I have uncommented  the field to not to include the sample applications.
-OPT feature="noFeature"  but i don't know for some reason it installed the sample applications too.

So, can anyone please help me how I can give the desired name of the Application server while doing Silent installation and to disable installing the sample applications.

Thanks,
WASAdmin

Excellent question.

Specify

-OPT profileType="none"

So that no profile is created during the installation process.
Then, after the installation, use the manageProfiles command, or profile creation tool to create the profile name with the server name you want.

You didn't say wheter your system was 32 or 64 bits...

If it's 64 bits, you have to use the manageProfiles command, since the Profile Creation utility isn't supported on 64 bit platforms.

Thanks for your response !!

I am using 32 bit machine.

Actually I am trying to do a silent installation. I have created two response files one without profile creation and the other with profile creation.

Regarding the manageprofile command I know I can add an argument called manageProfiles -create -serverName myserver1


However, I would like to use the response files for the silent installation of WAS

Moreover, I have seen the options in the response file like

-OPT PROF_appServerProfileName=

-OPT PROF_nodeName =

and

-OPT PROF_cellName=

But there is no option where I can give my desired application server name.

So my question is, can I add an argument like

-OPT PROF_appServerName=    ???

I never tried though !!!!!


Please advice !!!

That is not an option that is recognized, or supported as part of the silent installation process.

To do what you want to do requires that you:

- install silently, and indicate that no profile should be created

Subsequently, use something like the manageProfiles command to create a profile with the desired server name.

Does this make sense?

Well, I found the answer  that  we can provide the option in the response file like

-OPT PROF_serverName=

with which we can create our desired application server name.

Thanks,
WAS Admin

Wow, that's a new one on me.  I must have been using an old template, and not seeing any new settings.

Have a great day, and thanks again for sharing.
