A WebSphere application server is made up of multiple layers. This article describes how to create a new profile in an existing application server. WebSphere can contain numerous profiles. Think of each unique profile as a container that has one or more cells.

 


Using the command line

Make a directory for the new profile.

~]# mkdir /opt/IBM/WebSphere/your_server_name/profiles

 

If creating a profile for an application server, using the following command. This command will also create a cell and node.

~]# /opt/IBM/WebSphere/your_app_server_name/bin/manageprofiles.sh 
-create 
-profileName profile01
-profilePath /opt/IBM/WebSphere/your_app_server_name/profiles/profile01
-serverName server01 
-nodeName node01 
-hostName server01.example.com

 

If creating a profile for a network deployment manager (dmgr), use the following command.

~]# /opt/IBM/WebSphere/your_dmgr_server_name/bin/manageprofiles.sh  
-create 
-templatePath /opt/IBM/WebSphere/your_dmgr_server_name/profileTemplates/dmgr/ 
-isDefault 
-profileName your_profile_name
-adminUserName your_username
-adminPassword your_password

 

The profile will now exist at /opt/IBM/WebSphere/your_server_name/profiles.

~]# ls /opt/IBM/WebSphere/your_server_name/profiles
profile01

 


Using GUI

Launch the Profile Management Tool.

~]# /opt/IBM/WebSphere/your_server_name/bin/ProfileManagement/pmt.sh

 

Select Create.

 

If creating a profile for a network deployment manager (dmgr), select Management, select Next, and follow the prompts.

If creating a profile for an application server, select Application server, select Next, and follow the prompts.
