2 Using the Configuration Wizard

This chapter describes how to use the Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard to create and update cells. It includes the following sections:

2.1 Before You Begin

If you are using a DB2 database, prior to starting the Configuration Wizard for the first time to configure FMW products, set the DB_DRIVER_CLASSPATH environment variable to include the full path to both db2jcc4.jar and db2jcc_license_cu.jar. If you do not do this, all DB2 connection tests will fail.

2.2 Starting the Configuration Wizard

The console for the machine on which the product installation resides must support Java-based graphical user interfaces (GUIs). All Windows-based consoles support Java-based GUIs; only a subset of UNIX-based consoles support Java-based GUIs.

Note:

If your system does not support a graphical display, you must use the wsadmin command to create and modify cells, and to federate your machines. See Chapter 4, "Using wsadmin to Configure Oracle Fusion Middleware," and Chapter 5, "wsadmin Command Reference," for more information.

You can start the Configuration Wizard in graphical mode from either the Windows Start menu or from the command line.

2.3 Creating a New Cell

To create a new cell for your Oracle Fusion Middleware product installation by using the Configuration Wizard, start the Configuration Wizard as described in Section 2.2, "Starting the Configuration Wizard."

Note:

If you cannot run the Configuration Wizard in GUI mode, Oracle recommends that you use a wsadmin script to create or reconfigure a cell. For more information, see Chapter 4, "Using wsadmin to Configure Oracle Fusion Middleware," and Chapter 5, "wsadmin Command Reference."

The Configuration Wizard displays a sequence of screens, in the order listed in Table 2-1. For more information about each screen, see the related section in Chapter 3, "Configuration Wizard Screens," or click the link in the Screen column.

Note:

The IBM WebSphere installation that you chose when installing your Oracle Fusion Middleware products persists in the Configuration Wizard. As a result, the Welcome screen is not usually displayed, and the Select Configuration Option screen appears first.

2.4 Federating a Remote Machine to an Existing Cell

In an IBM WebSphere ND environment, you can create Application Server nodes on one or more remote machines, and associate those nodes with the Deployment Manager that will manage them. This process is called federating a machine. It is the process that you use to add new nodes to a cell that you previously created from the Deployment Manager node.

Note:

Prior to federating a machine, you must install IBM WebSphere ND and your Oracle Fusion Middleware products on that machine. The IBM WebSphere ND and Oracle Fusion Middleware product versions must be identical on all machines.

After adding remote nodes to an existing cell on the Deployment Manager host, you can:

To federate a remote machine to an existing cell on the Deployment Manager node:

  1. If you have not already created the cell to which the new node will belong, follow the steps in Section 2.3, "Creating a New Cell," to create a new cell on the Deployment Manager node.

    The cell does not need to contain any products or be otherwise configured; you only need to create the Deployment Manager profile and an empty custom profile. Typically, you will want to run the Oracle Fusion Middleware applications on remote nodes and not run them on the Deployment Manager node. Therefore, you should add products during the federation process or by editing the cell configuration later.

  2. On the Deployment Manager node, start the Deployment Manager as follows:

    If only one Deployment Manager is configured on the machine or if you are federating the remote node to a cell that is managed by the default Deployment Manager, execute the following commands, where WAS_HOME is the IBM WebSphere ND home directory:

    • UNIX:

      cd WAS_HOME/bin

      ./startManager.sh

    • Windows:

      cd WAS_HOME\bin

      startManager.cmd

    If multiple Deployment Managers are configured on the machine and you want to start a Deployment Manager other than the default, execute the following commands, where WAS_HOME is the IBM WebSphere ND home directory, and DepMgr is the name of the Deployment Manager that will manage the remote nodes (for example, Dmgr01):

    • UNIX:

      cd WAS_HOME/profiles/DepMgr/bin

      ./startManager.sh

    • Windows:

      cd WAS_HOME\profiles\DepMgr\bin

      startManager.cmd

  3. On the remote machine, start the Configuration Wizard as follows, where ORACLE_HOME is the directory in which you installed your Oracle Fusion Middleware products:

    • UNIX:

      cd ORACLE_HOME/common/bin

      ./was_config.sh

    • Windows:

      cd ORACLE_HOME\common\bin

      was_config.cmd

  4. See Table 2-5 for the sequence of screens that are displayed in the Configuration Wizard when you are federating a machine. For more information about each screen, see the related section in Chapter 3, "Configuration Wizard Screens," or click the link in the Screen column.

2.6 Postconfiguration Steps

After completing the cell configuration, perform the steps in the following sections to:

Deployment Manager Machine

Perform the following steps on the Deployment Manager machine to start the Deployment Manager, Node Agent, and Administration Server:

  1. If the Deployment Manager is not already running, start the Deployment Manager as follows:

    If only one Deployment Manager is configured on the machine or to start the default Deployment Manager, execute the following commands, where WAS_HOME is the IBM WebSphere ND home directory:

    • UNIX:

      cd WAS_HOME/bin

      ./startManager.sh

    • Windows:

      cd WAS_HOME\bin

      startManager.cmd

    If multiple Deployment Managers are configured on the machine and you want to start a Deployment Manager other than the default, execute the following commands, where WAS_HOME is the IBM WebSphere ND home directory, and DepMgrProfile is the profile name of the Deployment Manager that you want to start (for example Dmgr02):

    • UNIX:

      cd WAS_HOME/profiles/DepMgrProfile/bin

      ./startManager.sh

    • Windows:

      cd WAS_HOME\profiles\DepMgrProfile\bin

      startManager.cmd

  2. Enter the following commands to start the Node Agent, where Profile is the name of the Application Server profile on the Deployment Manager machine (for example, Custom01):

    • UNIX:

      cd WAS_HOME/profiles/Profile/bin

      ./startNode.sh -profileName Profile

    • Windows:

      cd WAS_HOME\profiles\Profile\bin

      startNode.cmd -profileName Profile

  3. Enter the following command to start the Administration Server:

    • UNIX:

      ./startServer.sh OracleAdminServer -profileName Profile

    • Windows:

      startServer.cmd OracleAdminServer -profileName Profile

  4. To start individual servers, enter the following command for each server:

    • UNIX:

      ./startServer.sh server_name -profileName Profile

    • Windows:

      startServer.cmd server_name -profileName Profile

Remote Nodes

On each remote node, enter the following command to start the Node Agent on the node, where NodeProfile is the Application Server profile name that you configured on the node (for example, Custom04):

2.7 Example Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration

This section provides an example configuration of an Oracle SOA Suite installation in an IBM WebSphere ND environment. The procedure assumes that you have already installed IBM WebSphere ND and the Oracle SOA Suite on each machine that will be included in the configuration.

In this example:

Figure 2-1 shows the resulting topology of the cell.

Figure 2-1 Example Configuration

Description of Figure 2-1 follows
Description of "Figure 2-1 Example Configuration"

Creating the Cell

To create this cell configuration, first perform the following steps on the Deployment Manager machine.

  1. Run the Configuration Wizard as described in Section 2.2, "Starting the Configuration Wizard."

  2. On the Select Configuration Option screen of the wizard, select Create and Configure Cell and click Next.

  3. Specify the cell name (Machine1Cell01), Deployment Manager profile name (Dmgr01), Deployment Manager node name (Machine1CellManager01), Application Server profile name (Custom01), and Application Server node name (Machine1Node01). Click Next.

  4. Specify the Deployment Manager host name, and create the user name and password for the Administrator account. This is the user name and password that you will use to connect to the Deployment Manager from the remote node. When you are done, click Next.

  5. Wait while the new cell is created, and then click Next to continue.

  6. On the Add Products screen, the Oracle CIE Core product is required and is already selected. Select the Oracle SOA Suite for WebSphere ND product. The Oracle Workflow Client Extension, Oracle WSM Policy Manager, and Oracle JRF for WebSphere products are then automatically selected, as they are required by SOA Suite. Click Next to continue.

    Note:

    If you do not want to run Oracle Fusion Middleware applications on the Deployment Manager host, install only the Oracle CIE Core product in this step. When you are configuring your first remote node, add Oracle SOA Suite and its supporting products to the cell.
  7. On the Configure JDBC Component Schema screen, select one or more component schemas and configure them appropriately. When done, click Next.

    Note:

    There are no JDBC data sources defined in configuration templates for the selected products, so the Configure JDBC Data Sources and Test JDBC Data Sources screens are not displayed.
  8. On the Test Component Schema screen, wait for the schema tests to run. When a check mark appears to the left of each schema, click Next to continue.

  9. On the Select Optional Configuration screen, select Application Servers, Clusters, and End Points. This allows you to create the soa_cluster_1 cluster and add soa_server_1 to it. There is no need to select the Deployments and Services JDBC, or JMS options, as all deployments, services, and other resources have already been targeted to the appropriate servers (OracleAdminServer or soa_server_1 or both). Click Next.

    Note:

    If you do not want to run Oracle Fusion Middleware applications on the Deployment Manager host, simply click Next on the Select Optional Configuration screen, and go to Step 15. Instead, create the cluster on the first remote node you add to the cell.
  10. On the Configure Application Servers screen, you will see OracleAdminServer and soa_server_1 in the list. Click Next to continue. For this example, there is no need to add additional application servers.

  11. On the Configure Clusters screen, click Add to add a new cluster. Enter soa_cluster_1 in the Name column, and select soa_server_1 from the list in the First cluster member column. When you are done, click Next.

  12. On the Add Additional Cluster Members screen, click Next. For this example, there is no need to add additional cluster members at this time. You will add the soa_server_2 cluster member when you configure the remote node.

  13. On the Configure End Points screen, click Next. For this example, there is no need to change the default port values. You may want to note the SOAP end point value, as this is the port you will use to connect to the Deployment Manager machine from a remote node.

  14. On the Configure File Store Shared Directories screen, click Next. For this example, there is no need to change the defaults.

  15. On the Configuration Summary screen, click Create to start the cell creation process.

  16. On the Configuring Cell screen, wait for the cell to be created, and then click Done to exit the Configuration Wizard.

  17. In the command window, enter the following commands to start the Deployment Manager, where WAS_HOME is the IBM WebSphere ND home directory:

    cd WAS_HOME/profiles/Dmgr01/bin/

    • UNIX:

      cd WAS_HOME/profiles/Dmgr01/bin

      ./startManager.sh -profileName Dmgr01

    • Windows:

      cd WAS_HOME\profiles\Dmgr01\bin

      startManager.cmd -profileName Dmgr01

Continue to the next procedure to add the remote node.

Federating a Remote Machine to the Cell

After completing the steps on the Deployment Manager machine, perform the following steps on the remote machine:

  1. Connect to the remote machine and start the Configuration Wizard as described in Section 2.2, "Starting the Configuration Wizard."

  2. On the Select Configuration Option screen, select Federate Machine and Configure Cell and click Next.

  3. Specify a unique profile name (Custom02) and node name (machine2_nameNode01). Click Next.

  4. On the Specify Deployment Manager Information screen:

    • Specify the host name of the Deployment Manager machine (Dmgr01).

    • Enter the SOAP port used to connect to the Deployment Manager (the default is 8880).

    • Enter the user name and password you specified in Step 4 of the previous procedure.

    • Click Next to continue.

  5. Wait while the node is federated to the cell.

  6. On the Add Products screen, the Oracle SOA Suite for WebSphere ND, Oracle Workflow Client Extension, Oracle WSM Policy Manager, and Oracle JRF for WebSphere and products are already selected, as they were added to the cell when you created it. Click Next.

  7. On the Configure JDBC Component Schema screen, click Next.

  8. On the Test Component Schema screen, wait for the schema tests to run. When a check mark appears to the left of each schema, click Next to continue.

  9. On the Select Optional Configuration screen, select Application Servers and Clusters. This allows you to add soa_server_2 to the soa_cluster1 cluster that you already created on the first node.

  10. On the Configure Application Servers screen, you will see OracleAdminServer and soa_server_1 in the list. Click Next to continue. For this example, there is no need to add additional Application Servers.

  11. On the Configure Clusters screen, you will see soa_server_1 in the cluster list. There is no need to create another cluster. Click Next.

  12. On the Add Additional Cluster Members screen, click Add to add soa_server_2 to soa_cluster_1.

  13. Enter soa_server_2 in the Name column, select the current node from the Node list, and select soa_cluster_1 from the Cluster list. The new cluster member inherits all attributes from the primary cluster member. When you are done, click Next.

  14. On the Configure End Points screen, click Next. For this example, there is no need to change the default port values. Unique end points are assigned to the new cluster member.

  15. On the Configure File Store Shared Directories screen, click Next. For this example, there is no need to change the defaults.

  16. On the Configuration Summary screen, click Create to start the cell creation process.

  17. On the Configuring Cell screen, wait for the cell to be created, and then click Done to exit the Configuration Wizard.

To scale the cluster to include additional Application Servers on other remote nodes, repeat the steps in this section using unique profile names and server names.
