Flexible management V5.1 EXempty Exercise 9. Flexible management What this exercise is about The objective of this lab is to acquaint you with the Flexible System Management (FSM) available in WebSphere Application Server V7.0 (WAS). This mechanism differs from the existing style of synchronous invocation/response calls through wsadmin or Java APIs by offering an asynchronous job queuing mechanism for administration purposes. This lab will guide you through creating and configuring the various profiles involved. What you should be able to do At the end of this lab you should be able to: ""Create a job manager profile and start the job manager "Create an admin agent profile and start the admin agent "Create a base profile, register it with admin agent, and enroll it with job manager "Create a utility module to check status "Create, start, stop, and delete an application server on the base profile "Explore wsadmin commands by using the job manager console "Force the admin agent to poll the job manager Introduction WebSphere Application Server V7.0 introduces a new style of system management called flexible management. It differs from the existing style of synchronous invocation/response calls through wsadmin or Java APIs by offering an asynchronous job queuing mechanism for administration purposes. This asynchronous style is not meant to replace existing WebSphere Application Server installations based on the cell model using deployment manager, node agents, and application servers. Rather, it offers the administrators additional management options not available previously: Management of multiple stand-alone application servers, up to a server farm containing hundreds of application servers.

Coordinate management actions across multiple deployment managers. Management of branch servers geographically dispersed and reachable only through low bandwidth, high latency network. Asynchronous administrative job submissions that - Take effect at a specified time - Expire after a specified time - Recur at a specified time interval - Notify the administrator through e-mail when job is complete. This lab is divided into the following parts. Part 1: Create a job manager profile Part 2: Create an administrative agent profile Part 3: Create an additional application server profile Part 4: Register the stand-alone application server with the job manager and administrative agent Part 5: Use the job manager to start a server Part 6: Explore the Job Manager and Administrative Agent consoles Part 7: Submit a job to backup the log files Lab requirements The system on which you will exercise this lab must have a supported operating system and a proper installation of WebSphere Application Server V7.0. For more information on supported operating systems, see the WebSphere Application Server V7.0 Information Center. In addition,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
