Asset Manager in cluster issue (no shared file system used)


Nikhil Gupta (262) | asked Apr 07 '10, 11:28 a.m.
We have deployed Rational Asset Manager in a WebSphere cluster and added assets to it. Now we see the assets on a local file system on only one server in the cluster.

we have now realized that we needed to have a shared drive for the persistence of the assets. The question is how do we move our assets to a shared drive without having to recreate all the assets in the system.

The Assets (content) are shared across a cluster (similar to a DB). The asset directory should be a shared file system (file server).

So is there a way we can recover from this without having to recreate all the assets we have in RAM already which are sitting on the non-shared drive on one of the cluster servers.

If all the assets were created on a single file system.... just share the (or copy the asset directory to a shared) directory.
Make sure to shut down WAS first.

If you have assets (files) created on both, you will need to merge them.
