Hi! First of all my primary comp -> was5host secondary comp -> was5host01
when i want to add a node for failover on the second comp using : (im on the was5host01 comp) -> c:\Program Files\WebSphere\Application Server\bin\addNode was5host 8879
I get this in the cmd Window:
ADMU0116I: Tool information is being logged in file C:\Program Files\WebSphere\AppServer\logs\addNode.log ADMU0001I: Begin federation of node was5host01 with Deployment Manager at was5host:8879. ADMU0009I: Successfully connected to Deployment Manager Server: was5host:8879 ADMU0505I: Servers found in configuration: ADMU0506I: Server name: server1 ADMU2010I: Stopping all server processes for node was5host01 ADMU0512I: Server server1 cannot be reached. It appears to be stopped. ADMU0024I: Deleting the old backup directory. ADMU0015I: Backing up the original cell repository. ADMU0012I: Creating Node Agent configuration for node: was5host01 ADMU0111E: Program exiting with error: com.ibm.websphere.management.exception.AdminException: ADMU0036E: The Deployment Manager cannot lookup by name host was5host01.ibm.com at address 127.0.0.1 ADMU0211I: Error details may be seen in the file: C:\Program Files\WebSphere\AppServer\logs\addNode.log ADMU1211I: To obtain a full trace of the failure, use the -trace option.
