Sun Java System Access Manager Policy Agent 2.2 Guide for IBM WebSphere Portal Server 6.0

  1. Ensure that the Administration instance of IBM WebSphere Application Server is stopped.

  2. Locate the adminconsole/WEB-INF/web.xml file, which contains the deployment descriptors for the IBM WebSphere 6.0 Administration Console.

    where WAS-base represents the directory where IBM WebSphere Application Server 6.0 was installed.

  3. Backup the web.xml file.

    Because you will modify the deployment descriptor in the next step, creating a backup file at this point is important, especially if you need to uninstall the agent in the future.

  4. Edit the web.xml file, as follows:

    <filter id="Filter_PolicyAgent">
    <filter-name>Policy Agent</filter-name>
    ... //other filter definitions
    <filter-mapping id="FilterMapping_PolicyAgent">
    <filter-name>Policy Agent</filter-name>
    ... //other filter mappings
