When you are managing multiple WebSphere environments and often making changes in multiple consoles simultaneously, then there is a risk of messing up things.
Let’s take a real-time scenario where you have three console opened and need to adjust the JVM memory in each console with different value.
Since all consoles looks identical, there is high chance in doing first console changes to the third one or vice versa. That’s where configuring console identity helps you in reducing this risk.
Console identity helps you to put custom text in banner so you know in which DMGR console you are logged in. Below is the default banner shown after you login.
Now, how about this one, which has info about application and environment?
Better than default one, isn’t it?
So, here is how you can do this.
- Login into IBM WAS DMGR Console
- Go to System administration >> Console Identity (located in left navigation panel)
- Select “custom” as Console identity
- Enter the Custom identigy string
- Click on Save
- Restart the DMGR
Now, re-login to DMGR to see the banner. I think it’s useful if you are managing multiple environments and often making changes to multiple consoles.
