Upgrading a WebSphere Node and re-sync

In this case I have a Websphere ND installation that has a DMGR and a one Node.

I ran an upgrade using the Update Installer (See my other articles on this site) and after logging back into a restarted Deployment Manager I saw the following




Looking at the Deployment Manager Node I am able to tell the ports being used, I can then manually issue a node sync to ensure that the node is synchronised and since the deployment manager has been restarted it knows it has an upgrade where as the node agent is out of sync with the DMGR and need to be told to sync.

Select Deployment Manager from the LHS navigation menu





Using the port information, I can use the nodeSync command.

[root@s15418557 bin]# ./syncNode.sh
Usage: syncNode dmgr_host [dmgr_port] [-conntype <type>] [-stopservers]
[-restart] [-quiet] [-nowait] [-logfile <filename>] [-replacelog]
[-trace] [-username <username>] [-password <password>]
[-localusername <localusername>] [-localpassword <localpassword>]
[-profileName <profile>] [-help]

./syncNode.sh <host_name> 8879 -conntype SOAP




Once the node is synchronised I can then restart it


[root@s15418557 bin]# ./startNode.sh
ADMU0116I: Tool information is being logged in file
/var/apps/was7/profiles/appsrv01/logs/nodeagent/startServer.log
ADMU0128I: Starting tool with the appsrv01 profile
ADMU3100I: Reading configuration for server: nodeagent
