Can't access to console

Hi guys,

What do I do to connect or access to console?, I just configured my AWS instance (security group) opening ports 9060, 9061, 9090 and 9080, then I did this over Main Application Administration Menu, option 4 (Open firewall port on ip-....................), but I can't access to any resources, only can reach  http://[MY-IP]:9080/ but trying for example  http://[MY-IP]:9080/snoop,  http://[MY-IP]:9060/ibm/console,  http://[MY-IP]:9061/ibm/console I receive ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED, am I missing something in configuration?

Hi, 

People are experiencing this problem usually because of incorrect security group/firewall settings. But in your case looks like your configuration is done properly. 

Are you sure WAS profile is actually running? I assume you followed this instruction :  https://www.midvisioncloud.com/ibm-websphere-on-amazon-web-services/websphere-application-server-base-edition-on-aws/. Did you see that profiles were created properly (in your logs)

Also could you possibly try to open ports 9043 and 9044 (in AWS security group configuration and also using open-firewall.sh script). 

If you are still experiencing this issue - feel free to register to our support portal https://support.midvision.com/redmine/ and raise a new ticket giving more information about the version, exact steps to recreate the issue.

Hi Mariusz,

Thanks for your reply, let me try to answer this:

1. I chose from AWS Marketplace "IBM WebSphere Application Server Liberty v17", thinking it's OK in order to can manage/deploy my EARs, am I correct?, because I'm afraid that I'm understanding this as WAS, but reading I'm interpreting only as a patch/upgrade of WAS.

2. The first point makes sense because when I start it, first setup doesn't show me options related to steps from   https://www.midvisioncloud.com/ibm-websphere-on-amazon-web-services/websphere-application-server-base-edition-on-aws, only appears 2 options:

- Set RapidDeploy framework initial password
- Open ports on RHEL firewall

Option - Create and Start Websphere application server doesn't appear, also when I pass to the next step, I receive 1 message saying: "can't connect to http://localhost:900 0" and ask me just for opening ports 9090 and 9080 (9060 9061 9043 9044 don't appear in the message). Putting "yes" and moving to the next step, again, only show me a partial info, only ask me for choosing "all" or "exit", "process" option doesn't appear.

Eventually, last resume doesn't show message posted in the point 7 from guide.

3. In relation to security group and more, my security group in AWS was configured to all tcp inbound, then all my ports should be available.

Could it be the main problem?, I must to start an instance with WAS 8.0 (for example) and THEN upgrade it to Liberty v17 or Liberty v17 is a WAS when I can access to console and all normal features listed in the guide?.

Hi,

I think you have started WebSphere Liberty Profile, but are reading the instructions to the WebSphere Base product. These are different products. The instructions are here:

WAS Liberty (lightweight server):  https://www.midvisioncloud.com/ibm-websphere-on-amazon-web-services/ibm-websphere-liberty-profile-edition-aws/

WAS Base (standard application server for deploying EAR files):  https://www.midvisioncloud.com/ibm-websphere-on-amazon-web-services/websphere-application-server-base-edition-on-aws/

Please make sure you choose the right product for your needs and follow the instructions appropriate to the product to get the server running. 

Best Regards,

Richard

Hi guys,

You are right, understanding and reading your last message, WAS 8.5.x Profile Liberty is different to WAS Liberty 17, right?, that makes sence why I'm not available to connect typical console/dashboard WAS since last one is a light-weight version of that (is for that reason than MidVision "gives" us this RapidDeploy into instance or not?).

I will test another instance with WAS Base (8.5.x) following the guide. Thanks for your time and answers.

Greetings.

Hi gorellana,

 

Just for clarification, WAS Liberty Profile, either version 8.5 or version 17, doesn't have a proper web console as WAS Base Profile. That's why the Liberty Profile instances come with a "helloworld" application deployed to check everything was OK at creation/configuration time, you can see these indications in the web documentation mentioned in the previous messages:  https://www.midvisioncloud.com/ibm-websphere-on-amazon-web-services/ibm-websphere-liberty-profile-edition-aws (section 4.2).

 

Regarding RapidDeploy, it is a completely different tool shipped with all the instances that MidVision provides regardless of what type of WAS it. It is a very useful Application Deployment Automation tool, you can find some more information here:  https://www.midvision.com/rapiddeploy-overview. As Richard mentioned before, regarding the WAS version just make sure you choose the right product (WAS Liberty, WAS Base, WAS ND) for your.

 

Cheers!
