IBM WebSphere - wsadmin Conntype (SOAP, RMI, IPC, JSR160RMI, NONE)

Updated:   |  IBM WebSphere articles

If you are not familiar with wsadmin.sh (Linux) / wsadmin.bat (Windows), check out our Getting Started article.

By default, the wsadmin.properties file is configured to use SOAP, like this.

com.ibm.ws.scripting.connectionType=SOAP

 

Additionally, wsadmin.properties defines the SOAP port that will be used, which is 8879 by default.

com.ibm.ws.scripting.port=8879

 

You can get the SOAP port in the dmgr admin console, at System administration > Deployment manager > Ports.

 

Or in the deployment manager serverindex.xml file.

 ~]$ cat /opt/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/your_profile/config/cells/your_cell/nodes/your_dmgr/serverindex.xml
    <specialEndpoints xmi:id="NamedEndPoint_4" endPointName="SOAP_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS">
      <endPoint xmi:id="EndPoint_4" host="dmgr.example.com" port="8879"/>
    </specialEndpoints>

 

You can use the -conntype option to spectify the type of connection you would like to make, like this:

wsadmin.sh -conntype NONE
wsadmin.sh -conntype SOAP
wsadmin.sh -conntype RMI
wsadmin.sh -conntype IPC
wsadmin.sh -conntype JSR160RMI

 

-conntype NONE is used to run in local mode, which means that wsadmin does not connect to any server processes. In this way, wsadmin can be used even if a server is not running. This is useful if you want to, say, install software on a server that is not running.
