ProcedureTo Archive the Federation Manager Packages

This section details the second part of the standard installation option: how to create a staging directory and archive the packages added to your machine in To Add Federation Manager Packages. This procedure will create the WAR used to deploy Federation Manager. After generating a WAR, see Deploying Your Federation Manager WAR.

  1. Log in as root.

  2. Run fmwar to archive the Federation Manager packages into a WAR file.

    Caution – Caution –

    The -g option in the example above is used only when creating a Federation Manager WAR for the first time. In these cases, the -g option must be specified and the -d option must point to a directory which does not yet exist. This directory will be the staging directory. A recommended path is /var/opt/SUNWam/FM/war_staging. If the -g option is not specified, -d must point to an existing staging directory to regenerate the WAR. See Detailing the fmwar Syntax for more information.
