Can more than one server be created in WAS 7.0 ?

Hi All,

I am new to WebSphere and want to know if we don't have RAD in place but only WAS version 7.0, will we be able to create more than one server (by default only one server is available on Admin console by the name 'server1')? I am developing a new J2EE web application but I don't want to add it to the existing server named 'server1' that is available by default. This is because, the server 'server1' has existing web applications that point to a different database than the database that my newly developed application uses.

Please help me and correct me if I am wrong in any of my assumptions.

Sure, you can create more than one Websphere server. The administrator's guide tells you how.

(You wanted assumptions corrected? Okay. You seem to be assuming that RAD has something to do with managing Websphere. It doesn't. It's just a tool for developing applications.)

Hi Pankaj.

Yes, you can create more than one server in one WAS installation. You just need to create a new profile and in order to do that run this command in your command line and follow the wizard

<WAS_INSTALLATION_DIR>/bin/ProfileManagement/pmt.bat (.sh if linux)

Hope this helps
