deploying a server component on provisioning server

Hi,

I'm a beginner in deploying a server component component using the provisioning server, so inevitably I do not deploy it the first time, perhaps because of wrong bundle dependencies. Do I need to unzip a brand new provisioning server after each failed attempt of a server component installation? It seems that if I do not use a brand new server after a failed attempt, the server is not in a correct state for me to re-attempt the component installation.

Hi Annie,

There are a couple of ways you can "reset" the Jazz Server :

1) In a web browser go to the "Components" Page in the Admin Web UI.
This page is not visible by default but you can still access it via a
direct URL.

https://localhost:9443/jazz/admin#action=jazz.viewPage&id=com.ibm.team.repository.provision

When this page is loaded you should see a tree control on the left hand
side with a root node called "Jazz Server". If you right click this
treed node a pop-up menu will appear with an option at the bottom called
"reset". If you select this option you should see this message on the
right hand side of the page.

"The Jazz Server has been flagged to reset and reload from the
configured update-site when it is next restarted"

When you shutdown and restart your server it will provision itself again
from the configured update-sites. In the console output for the server
you should see this on the next start of the server :

"Attempting to delete
"

As long as no error message is seen after this the reset has been
successful.

2) You can directly reset without going through the Admin WebUI by using
this secure URL (You need admin rights) :

https://localhost:9443/jazz/admin/cmd/requestReset

Hi,

Do you know how I can reset the server if I can't get the server to restart because of of an old file caching issue? Is the a file on the server that I can modify and reset the server?

Thanks!
