Configuring the virtual host in IBM Business Process Manager (BPM)

Technote (troubleshooting)


In IBM Business Process Manager (BPM), if you have more than one deployment environment in the same cell, you need a script and instructions to configure a virtual host.

Resolving the problem

To configure the virtual host, complete the following steps:

  1. Start the Deployment Manager.

  2. Run dmgr_profile\bin\updateVirtualHost -? on Microsoft Windows operating systems or -help on UNIX-based operating systems to view the usage instructions.

  3. Run the updateVirtualHost command with the deployment environment names and the virtual host name:
    updateVirtualHost -d Deployment Environment Name 1,Deployment Environment Name 2 -v virtual_host_name

    The updateVirtualHost command is located in the dmgr_profile/bin directory. For example, run updateVirtualHost -d de1,de2 -v test_host.

    In this example, the web modules of the applications in the deployment environments de1 and de2 are mapped to the virtual host  test_host after you run the script.

    VirtualHost is the name of the virtual host to which the web modules of the applications are mapped. Specify the following options also:

    -no-sync - Do not force the immediate propagation of changes across the nodes.
    -no-save - Do not save the configuration changes.
