Abstract

This SupportPac enables IBM ORBD, WebSphere InterChange Server, and WebSphere Business Integration Adapters to be managed by Microsoft Cluster Server.

Download Description

Configuring WebSphere InterChange Server for Windows 2003 with Microsoft Cluster Server enables WebSphere InterChange Server, IBM ORBD, and WebSphere Business Integration Adapters to be managed by Microsoft Cluster Server (MSCS), to provide high availability.

A highly available IBM ORBD, WebSphere InterChange Server, or WebSphere Business Integration Adapter can provide continuous service in case failure of a machine or a component occurs. This is achieved by providing automated failure detection, failover, and restart.

In addition to operating after a failure, a highly available IBM ORBD, WebSphere InterChange Server, or WebSphere Business Integration Adapters can continue to provide service during periods when a machine is shut down for scheduled maintenance. An administrator can deliberately initiate the movement of IBM ORBD, WebSphere InterChange Server, or WebSphere Business Integration Adapters and their associated resources from one machine to another.

This SupportPac contains information about how to configure an MSCS Cluster to manage IBM ORBD, WebSphere InterChange Server, and WebSphere Business Integration Adapters.

POSSIBLE USES
Configuring WebSphere InterChange Server for Windows with MSCS provides a means for monitoring and controlling IBM ORBD, WebSphere InterChange Server, and WebSphere Business Integration Adapters running within the MSCS cluster, to achieve high availability.

This support provides automatic monitoring of IBM ORBD, WebSphere InterChange Server, and WebSphere Business Integration Adapters and the ability to perform local restarts. With the MSCS support, the local restart capability of WebSphere InterChange Server is extended; it can also restart on another machine within the cluster. The capability to restart components on another machine makes them available even following power losses, hardware failures, or other types of failure that previously would have led to a loss of service.

SKILL LEVEL REQUIRED
The SupportPac is aimed at a professional trained in WebSphere InterChange Server for Windows 2003 and MSCS.

NEW IN THIS RELEASE
Support for IBM ORBD and WebSphere InterChange Server 4.3.0.2 high availability.
