Start Server sample script for Liberty Collectives

Description

In IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment Version 8.5.5, Liberty profile has introduced the Liberty collective feature. Refer to information about collectives in the IBM WebSphere Application Server Version 8.5.5 information center for more specifics.

The startServer.py sample demonstrates how to call the ServerCommands MBean from a Jython script to start a collective member server.

  • The ServerCommands MBean operation used:
    • startServer

startServer.py script

The startServer sample script demonstrates how to start a collective member with the given member host name, usr directory and member name. A connection is made to the collective controller located at the given host and https port, and the request to start the server is passed to the ServerCommands MBean.

Server commands require remote execution and access (RXA). Before running this sample script, ensure the target system(s) are configured for remote access. For more information on the remote execution and access requirements and setup, refer to Requirements for using Remote Execution and Access (RXA) in the information
center.
