Managing Portal Scripting Interface in your cluster

The Portal Scripting Interface enables the creation of administrative tasks that administrators can run from a command line. You must prepare your cluster to manage Portal Scripting Interface.

Procedure

  1. Complete the following steps before you use the Portal Scripting Interface for the first time:
    1. Verify that the wp.wire.jar file is present in the AppServer_root/lib directory on the deployment manager workstation.
    2. If the file is not present, copy the file from the AppServer_root/lib directory on any HCL node to the AppServer_root/lib directory on the deployment manager workstation.
    3. Restart the deployment manager.
  2. For z/OS®: Before you use the Portal Scripting Interface for the first time, complete the following steps:
    1. Mount the SMP/E home directory of HCL, read only, on your deployment manager node.
    2. Edit job EJPSSEWL with the SMP/E home directory of HCL for #EJPSMPH# and with the WebSphere® Application Server home directory of the deployment manager node for #ASWASH#.
    3. Submit the job on the deployment manager node.
    4. Upon completion, examine the job output. Success is indicated with "rc=0" in the job output.
    5. Restart the deployment manager.
  3. Run the following task to connect the scripting client to the WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment SOAP port:
    Where:
    • ND SOAP Port is the WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment workstation's SOAP connector-address.

      To find the SOAP port, on the WebSphere Integrated Solutions Console, clickSystem administration > Deployment Manager > Ports > SOAP_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS.

      For example, if you are running wpscript on a workstation that is part of a cell that is managed by a deployment manager, the SOAP port might be 8881.

    • user is the WebSphere Application Server administrative user name.
    • password is the administrative user password.
