Synchronizing scopes manually

If automatic synchronization is not enabled for the scopes that are used for web content, or if you want to run synchronization outside of a scheduled synchronization period, you can manually start the synchronization process.

Procedure

To manually run synchronization, run the cp-sync configuration task or submit an XML request to the portal by using the XML configuration interface.
  • To run synchronization with a configuration task, run the following task from the wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine directory:
    • Windows™: ConfigEngine.bat cp-sync -DWasPassword=password -DPortalAdminPwd=password
    • UNIX™Linux™: ./ConfigEngine.sh cp-sync -DWasPassword=password -DPortalAdminPwd=password
    • IBM® i: ConfigEngine.sh cp-sync -DWasPassword=password -DPortalAdminPwd=password
    • z/OS®: ConfigEngine.sh cp-sync -DWasPassword=password -DPortalAdminPwd=password
  • Create an XML request file and submit it using the xmlaccess command. Here is an example of a request you can use to start synchronization:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 
    <request type="update" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" 
      xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="PortalConfig_8.5.0.xsd"> 
      <portal action="locate"> 
        <task action="create" name="com.ibm.portal.cp.SynchronizationTask"/> 
      </portal> 
    </request>
