Gather information and software before you install WebSphere Portal. You can use existing prerequisite software installations. Verify that your existing version is supported. If it is not, upgrade to the appropriate version. Otherwise, install a web server, database server, and user registry server. Typically the database and user registry servers are already installed and configured. However, there might be specific configuration steps that are required to integrate them with the portal server.
Installing WebSphere Portal V9. Start the configuration wizard to set up your clustered environment. First, transfer your database. Then, create the deployment manager and create a cluster node. Then, enable your federated LDAP user registry. Finally, create your additional horizontal cluster nodes using the Configuration Wizard. These instructions are for a horizontal cluster only.
For information on setting up a vertical cluster, see Setting up a Cluster in the Configuring section of the documentation. Complete the following steps to create extra cluster nodes: For additional nodes, you only need to install the WebSphere Portal product binary files. Tuning the servers is important to the performance of your portal environment.
WebSphere Portal is not tuned for a production environment after installation and deployment. Your database needs tuning for improved performance. You can organize your database now or soon after you finish your configuration. You need to tune and maintain your database on a regular basis.
Depending on the choices that you made during the installation and set up, there are additional tasks to configure your environment. Ensure that you configure the web server plug-in after you transfer your database. Use this roadmap if you are an organization with the following requirements: An organization whose production site requires improved availability and failover An organization whose site experiences random high load situations that might benefit from dynamic load balancing An organization whose website can benefit from other features such as prioritization, health monitoring, and dynamic operations An organization that needs to manage deployments and synchronize various cluster nodes with a single administrative interface, the deployment manager.
If you are using Windows Defender, it can cause installation failures. To avoid errors, add the C: If you use a different temp directory for your installation, add that directory to the ignore list. The launchpad requires Firefox ESR 45 or earlier.
Before you begin. There is a known issue with Chrome version If you are experiencing difficulties, use a different browser when you access the wizard. The wizard user interface might not be available in all languages. If the language is not currently supported, you might see the English version.
After migration, the deployment manager name for example remains unchanged. To avoid conflicts with the new target environment server and services, you need to set unique ports. If you do not run this task, it is possible for the source and target environments to become corrupted. As a rule, increase the original port number by You still need to make sure that the same ports are not used in the source environment.
Before you begin. The WebSphere Application Server v9. Use the same WebSphere Application Server installation directory path as the source server. Use the exact same cell name and node name that you used for the WebSphere Application Server v8. Open them with the appropriate tool. Linux only: Ensure that read and run permissions are set on the extracted files.
For example: In Linux you can use the following command to find files larger than 10 MB: In Windows , you can run the following search in Windows Explorer: The command returns a value similar to the following example: Where the following values are set: Verify that only one profile is in the backup profile. Consider deleting Search Collection to decrease the data size. Move JCR Data during migration. This data is not altered by the migration process, so it can be temporarily moved out of the old profile or the backup directory in preparation for migration.
Move the directory into the new profile after migration completes. If the folder is read only, the install-wp-migration-files command fails. If this step fails, ConfigEngine might not be working.
