I am using Fedora 6 because the VM images I have been downloading have a larger partition format @ 6GB. I will ultimately create a new Fedoar7 install that will be created by me from scratch in time as it is faster on VM for some reason.

This installation is to show how to install two IHS servers for load balancing at an edge server, however at home this would not be practical as I do not have edge servers.


Here is my IHS installation on websphere2.fedora6.com - the second node
/apps/was/ws6/IHS/






















































this is what is added to http.conf on node02

LoadModule was_ap20_module /apps/was/IBMIHS/Plugins/bin/mod_was_ap20_http.so
WebSpherePluginConfig /apps/was/IBMIHS/Plugins/config/webserver2/plugin-cfg.xml





















Have to ensure that the web server variables exist or use absolute paths




Install the other web server on node01




set-up a virtual server so both nodes can serve snoop

























wait for nodes to be synched ie transfer the ear across all nodes.







Generate and propagate plug-in






Create virtual host









Before being able to browse snoop, but ensure that is mapped and also set to use the correct virtual host.










Virtual hosts as set in http.conf

Listen 192.168.0.65:60610

NameVirtualHost 192.168.0.65:60610
<VirtualHost 192.168.0.65:60610>
#ServerName
ErrorLog /apps/was/IBMIHS/logs/error.log
CustomLog /apps/was/IBMIHS/logs/access.log combined

</VirtualHost>



Listen 192.168.0.60:60610

NameVirtualHost 192.168.0.60:60610
<VirtualHost 192.168.0.60:60610>
#ServerName
ErrorLog /apps/was/IBMIHS/logs/error.log
CustomLog /apps/was/IBMIHS/logs/access.log combined

</VirtualHost>

Tips: Generate and propogate plug-in after virtual hosts are set, once changes have been made to application for default host they must be restarted.
