Description

The install-node-ssh subcommand installs GlassFish Server software on the hosts that are specified as the operand of the subcommand. This subcommand requires secure shell (SSH) to be configured on the host where the subcommand is run and on each host where the GlassFish Server software is being installed.

Note:

This subcommand is equivalent to the install-node(1) subcommand. To install GlassFish Server software on hosts that use the Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) remote protocol, use the install-node-dcom(1) subcommand.

If necessary, the subcommand creates a ZIP archive of the GlassFish Server software from the installation where this subcommand is run. The archive does not contain the domains directory or the nodes directory. These directories are synchronized from the domain administration server (DAS) when instances on nodes that represent the hosts are created and started. The subcommand does not delete the archive after installing the GlassFish Server software from the archive on the specified hosts.

If multiple hosts are specified, the configuration of the following items is the same on all hosts:

If the SSH key file does not exist on a host where the GlassFish Server software is to be installed, the subcommand runs interactively and prompts for a password. To enable the subcommand to run noninteractively, the following conditions must be met:

The subcommand does not modify the configuration of the DAS.

This subcommand is supported in local mode only.

Options

--help
-?

Displays the help text for the subcommand.

--archive

The absolute path to the archive file of the GlassFish Server software that is to be installed. If no archive file is specified, the subcommand creates an archive from the installation of GlassFish Server software from which the subcommand is run. This archive is created in the home directory of the user that is running the command.

--create

Specifies whether the subcommand should create an archive file of the GlassFish Server software to install.

false

No archive file is created. The subcommand installs the software from the existing archive file that the --archive option specifies (default).

true

The subcommand creates an archive file from the installation of GlassFish Server software from which the subcommand is run.

--save

Specifies whether the archive file from which the software is installed is saved after installation.

false

The archive file is not saved. The subcommand deletes the file after installing the software (default).

true

The archive file is saved.

--installdir

The absolute path to the parent of the base installation directory where the GlassFish Server software is to be installed on each host, for example, /export/glassfish3/. If the directory does not exist, the subcommand creates the directory.

The user that is running this subcommand must have write access to the specified directory. Otherwise, an error occurs.

To overwrite an existing an installation of the GlassFish Server software, set the --force option to true. If the directory already contains an installation and the --force option is false, an error occurs.

The default is the parent of the base installation directory of the GlassFish Server software on the host where this subcommand is run.

--sshport

The port to use for SSH connections to the host where the GlassFish Server software is to be installed. The default is 22.

--sshuser

The user on the host where the GlassFish Server software is to be installed that is to run the process for connecting through SSH to the host. The default is the user that is running this subcommand. To ensure that the DAS can read this user's SSH private key file, specify the user that is running the DAS process.

--sshkeyfile

The absolute path to the SSH private key file for user that the --sshuser option specifies. This file is used for authentication to the sshd daemon on the host.

The user that is running this subcommand must be able to reach the path to the key file and read the key file.

The default is a key file in the user's .ssh directory. If multiple key files are found, the subcommand uses the following order of preference:

  1. id_rsa

  2. id_dsa

  3. identity

--force

Specifies whether the subcommand overwrites an existing installation of the GlassFish Server software in the directory that the --installdir option specifies. Possible values are as follows:

false

The existing installation is not overwritten (default).

true

The existing installation is overwritten.

Operands

host-list

A space-separated list of the names of the hosts where the GlassFish Server software is to be installed.
