thanks a lot.
Life called,so here I am.<br />Cheers<br />Niki.:-)
To install, assuming you are using WAS base, invoke the wsadmin program in $WAS_HOME/bin, then enter the following jacl commands:
set installOptions [list -node "YOUR NODE NAME" -server "YOUR SERVER NAME"] $AdminApp install "EAR TO INSTALL" $installOptions $AdminConfig save
For "YOUR NODE NAME" substitute your node name. For "YOUR SERVER NAME" substitute your server name. For "EAR TO INSTALL" substitute the fully qualified name of the ear file you want to install, in your case that would be adminconsole.ear in the installableApps directory. Put the name in quotes if you have spaces in the directory name.
To uninstall an application, invoke wsadmin and enter the following command, substituting "ENTERPRISE APP NAME" with the enterprise application name (not the ear name): $AdminApp uninstall "ENTERPRISE APP NAME"
See the InfoCenter for complete information on using the scripting facility. You can write very powerful administration scripts using either jacl or jython scripting languages.
