Creating A New WebSphere Instance

Im planning to create more than 1 WebSphere instance on my box, im using a CentOS for development, and IBM AIX for production. On this example i have an instance named “AppSrv01″ and trying to create a new WebSphere instance “AppSrvTeller”. Btw, im using WAS 6.1 on my box.

Okay here we go,
first is executing to create a new profiles, when im executing -help -create, it will print

The following command line arguments are required for this mode.
Command-line arguments are case sensitive.
-create: Creates a new profile. Specify -help -create -templatePath <path> to get template-specific help information.
-templatePath: The fully qualified path name of the profile template that is located on the file system. The following example selects a template: -templatePath <app_server_home>/profileTemplates/<Template_name>
-profileName: The name of the profile.
-profilePath: The intended location of the profile in the file system.

The following command line arguments are optional, and have no default values.
Command-line arguments are case sensitive.
-isDefault: Make this profile the default target of commands that do not use their profile parameter.
-omitAction: Omit optional features.

[root@localhost bin]# uname -a

[root@localhost bin]# pwd
[root@localhost bin]# sh -create -profileName AppSrvTeller -templatePath /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profileTemplates/default/ -profilePath /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrvTeller
INSTCONFSUCCESS: Success: Profile AppSrvTeller now exists. Please consult /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrvTeller/logs/AboutThisProfile.txt for more information about this profile.
