2.6.  Manage nodes in a WebSphere topology, for example, managed, unmanaged nodes, flexible management and network deployment cell.

[Note]

Using the syncNode command

The syncNode command can be used from the node to force the synchronization of a node's local configuration repository with the master repository on the deployment manager node.

Tip: The syncNode command is normally only used in exception situations. To use the syncNode command, the node agent MUST be stopped. You can use the -stopservers and -restart options on the syncNode command to stop the node agent and application servers, and then restart the node agent.

The syntax of the syncNode command is:

syncNode.sh dmgr_host dmgr_port [options]
					

The options are shown below:


syncNode.sh 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]

					

Example below shows the syncNode command and options. The command is executed from the node. The -stopservers and -restart options are used to stop all the servers on the node, including the node agent, and then restart the node agent after the synchronization.
