Reconfigure WAS plugin after WAS / IHS upgrade?


Francis Kemp (7212334) | asked Jan 14 '14, 4:50 p.m.

I am preparing to upgrade a distributed CLM environment (using IHS for Reverse Proxy) from V403 to V405.  As part of the upgrade, I will be upgrading WAS from V8004 to V8006 because V8006 is the required version of WAS for CLM V405.

Is it [required | recommended | not necessary] to reconfigure the WAS / IHS plugins for the CLM Webapps after the WAS upgrade?

Thanks,

Fran

Hi Francis,

It is not necessary to do that, WAS upgrade does not override the existing settings.
You need to regenerate the plugins each time you change the setting for ports, host aliases, context root, etc.

Thanks Adam.  I knew the upgrade wouldn't override the settings, but in order to get any bugfixes/upgrades in the plugin code you would need to regenerate, correct?

Hi Francis,

The "Generate / Propagate" options in WAS console are used to create, update and deploy only plugin configuration files.

The actual plugins are installed on the server and restarting WAS and IHS is what you need to do to get the fixes and upgrades.
