Websphere silent profile creation

Just like for the WAS installation, you can perform a silent creation of your server profiles. This needs a dedicated script which is located under the WAS_ROOT/bin folder and it is named (manageprofile.bat for Windows).

The silent profile creation does not require any response file; you just need passing all the profile parameters as in the following example:

For Linux:

./ -create -profileName appsrv01 -profilePath   <was_root>/profiles/appsrv01 -templatePath                      <was_root>/profileTemplates/default -cellName appsrv01node01     -hostName -nodeName node01

For Windows:

manageprofiles.bat -create -profileName appsrv01 -profilePath   <was_root>\profiles\appsrv01 -templatePath                       <was_root>\profileTemplates\default -cellName appsrv01node01   -hostName -nodeName node01

The expected outcome of it will be:

INSTCONFSUCCESS: Success: Profile appsrv01 now exists. Please consult /var/apps/was8/profiles/appsrv01/logs/AboutThisProfile.txt for more information about this profile.

Please check the –help parameter of the manageprofiles shell in order to see all the available options for this command.
