Hi,

We have many WAS6.1 nodes in the platform and looking for centralizing the admin using WAS7's Admin Agent.

I want to know whether I can register the WAS6.1 Base nodes to the WAS7 Admin Agent.

Thanks,
Rishi

What is an "Admin Agent"?

Generally, if you have multiple / many Application Servers that you would like administered (managed) from a "central" administration point, you would use the AddNode command:

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v6r1/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.websphere.nd.doc/info/ae/ae/rxml_addnode.html

To add an application server to an existing Deployment Manager node

All "managed" application servers can be administered from the same Deployment Manager.

Hi HonorGod,
I asked about regristering (not federating to DMGR) nodes to the "Admin Agent" which was introducted in WAS v7.
The Docs says that base servers can be registered with Admin Agent for centralized oparations(starting & stopping) not for doing any configurations.
I am abble to attach/register our WAS 7 Base servers to the Admin Agent but unable to try out registering WAS61 base servers with Admin Agent.

Hope this explains my question.

Thanks,
Rishi

Setting up the administrative agent environment:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v7r0/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.websphere.nd.doc/info/ae/ae/tagt_adminagent_setup.html

See the notes which include the following:
"A node is not allowed to register with an administrative agent unless that node has an identical set of products and versions."

So, the answer to your question:

Q: Can we register the WAS6.1 Base nodes to the WAS7 Admin Agent?

is:

No.

Sorry.
