How to Add a WebEngine to an existing Environment


Step 1: Change to the Directory E:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Service Desk\Samples\pdmconf from the command prompt

Step 2: Run the command pdm_perl

It will prompt whether this is being run for NT, select 'Yes' depending on where you are running it.

Then you will be warned on whether to continue or not, selecting Yes will move the process further, No will halt the process.

Enter the number for the option of your choice.

In this case since we want to setup up an additional Web Engine, we select number '3'

We will add a new web engine hence enter the 'a' for Add.

On selecting 'A, you will be prompted to provide the hostname that would be running the webengine.

The next prompt is for CGI Port Number, default value assigned is 8080, type in the correct value in case you do not want to proceed with the default value.

In this example we selected port 80 instead of the default value.(New Feature with R11, provided for Tomcat)

Select the Object Manager for the Web Engine, if you are going with the Domserver on the primary server, then hit enter to accept default value.

Otherwise type in the domserver name with which you would like to associate the Web engine.

Next prompt is for the webdirector, since we are not setting up any webdirector, just hit enter.

Provide the Interface name for the pdmweb executable, Default is pdmweb1, incase you want to change you can rename it. (Recommended to go with the default setting)
