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.
