How to add, remove, or delete a remote node to a WebSphere network deployment manager

Adding nodes to a network deployment manager allows you to control certain things on remote application servers. For example, you can start or stop the application server, start or stop an application, and deploy a new application to the application server.

 


Using the command line

You will run this command from the server that contains the node that you want to add to the deployment manager. Be aware that this will restart the application server. In this example, "example.com" is the hostname of the deployment manager, and 8879 is the SOAP port of the deployment manager.

~]# /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/addNode.sh example.com 8879

 

There will be a prompt to provide a username and password. Use the username and password of the deployment manager.

Username: deployment_manager_username
Password: deployment_manager_password

 

There will be another prompt to provide a username and password. Use the username and password for the node.

Username: node_username
Password: node_password

 


Using the web console

Be aware that this will restart the remote application server.

  1. Sign into the network deployment manager (dmgr) web console.
  2. In the left panel, expand System Administration and select Nodes.
  3. Select Add Node.
  4. Select Managed node and select Next.

Note: An unmanaged node does not have a node agent or administrative agent to manage its servers. A managed node does have a node agent or administrative agent to manage its servers.

  1. Enter the hostname, port, username, and password of the remote node, check Include applications, and select OK.

In this example, node01 on the application server with hostname was1.software.eng.us was added to the network deployment manager. Now, the network deployment manager can be used to administor the application servers and applications on the the remote application server.

 


Remove a remote node

  2. In the left panel, expand System Administration and select Nodes.
  3. Checkmark the node you want to remove and select Remove Node.
  4. Select OK.
  5. Select Save.
