Updating the data source configuration in a cloned environment

If you are running a database server on the node that was cloned, you might need to update the data source configuration.


  1. In the WebSphere Application Server Administration Console, select Resources > JDBC > Data sources.
  2. Select the data source that you want to change.
    For example: WebSphere Commerce DB2 DataSource demo.
  3. Update the data source properties to point to your new database host name.
    For example, update the URL property with the new host name.
  4. Repeat all steps for all configured data sources, including your WebSphere Commerce search data sources.
    For example, WebSphere Commerce Search DB2 DataSource demo_search.
  5. Save all changes.
