ProcedureTo Deploy on Web Server

Before You Begin

Before deploying the NameFinder application, make sure you have installed and configured the software listed in Prerequisite Software.

  1. Log in to the Web Server browser-based administration interface.

    For example, if you configured the Web Server administration interface to use the default port, go to http://hostname:8888/.

  2. Click Manage next to the Web Server Hostname drop-down menu.

  3. Select the Virtual Server Class tab, and then click Manage next to the Virtual Server Class drop-down menu.

  4. Click Manage next to the Virtual Server drop-down menu.

    This page is where you manage the server instance on which to deploy the NameFinder application.

  5. Select the Web Application tab, and then complete the web form for application deployment.

    You can find the nfDSRK.war web application archive in the class directory where you installed the Directory Server Resource Kit, install-path/dsrk6/class/nfDSRK.war.

    Notice when completing the web form that the installation directory is install-path/dsrk6/class/.

    Furthermore, you can change the name of the application URI. The default is /nfDSRK. Another possible application URI is /NameFinder.

  6. Apply the changes.

  7. Return to the Server Manager page to turn the server off, and then turn the server on again.

  8. View the NameFinder application for the first time.

    For example, if you configured Web Server to use the default settings and entered /nfDSRK as the application URI, go to http://hostname/nfDSRK/.

    You can now proceed to Configuring NameFinder to Access Your Directory.
