All SPS for Linux WebSphere MQ Recovery Kit administrative tasks can be performed via the LifeKeeper Graphical User Interface (GUI). The LifeKeeper GUI provides a guided interface to configure, administer and monitor WebSphere resources.
The following tasks are described in this guide, as they are unique to a WebSphere MQ resource instance and different for each Recovery Kit.
- Create a Resource Hierarchy – Creates a WebSphere MQ resource hierarchy.
- Delete a Resource Hierarchy – Deletes a WebSphere MQ resource hierarchy.
- Extend a Resource Hierarchy – Extends a WebSphere MQ resource hierarchy from the primary server to a backup server.
- Unextend a Resource Hierarchy – Unextends (removes) a WebSphere MQ resource hierarchy from a single server in the LifeKeeper cluster.
- Editing Configuration Resource Properties – Reconfigures WebSphere MQ resource parameters including LifeKeeper test queue, listener management and stop timeouts after creation of the WebSphere MQ resource hierarchy.
- Create a Resource Dependency. Creates a parent/child dependency between an existing resource hierarchy and another resource instance and propagates the dependency changes to all applicable servers in the cluster.
- Delete a Resource Dependency. Deletes a resource dependency and propagates the dependency changes to all applicable servers in the cluster.
- In Service. Brings a resource hierarchy into service on a specific server.
- Out of Service. Takes a resource hierarchy out of service on a specific server.
