The web blog http://www.learnsccd.com strives to be a comprehensive guide to SCCD, TADDM, SERVICE NOW and MAXIMO tools. This is a personal site maintained solely by me. I intend to update it regularly.For live updates please follow us on.

Clearing WebSphere temporary file caches for Maximo Asset Management

Clearing WebSphere temporary file caches for Maximo Asset Management


1. Log into the WebSphere Integrated Solutions Console. 

2. Shut down the Maximo application server (default name MXServer). 

3. Under Applications > Application Types > WebSphere enterprise applications, select and uninstall the Maximo Enterprise application (maximo.ear) completely. 

4. Delete cached files from temp, tranlog, wstemp and, optionally, logs directories: 

Windows (WebSphere location is C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer, the application server profile is called ctgAppSrv01, the node is called ctgNode01, and the Maximo server is called MXServer)

    C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\ctgAppSrv01\temp\ctgNode01\MXServer\*.* 
    C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\ctgAppSrv01\tranlog\ctgCell01\ctgNode01\MXServer\*.* 
    C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\ctgAppSrv01\wstemp\*.* 
    (optional) C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\ctgAppSrv01\logs\MXServer\*.*


Unix ( WebSphere location is /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/ctgAppSrv01, the application server profile is called ctgAppSrv01, the node is called ctgNode01, and the Maximo server is called MXServer).


    /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/ctgAppSrv01/temp/ctgNode01/MXServer/*.* 
    /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/ctgAppSrv01/tranlog/ctgCell01/ctgNode01/MXServer/*.* 
    /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/ctgAppSrv01/wstemp/*.* 
    (optional) /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/ctgAppSrv01/logs/MXServer/*.*


5. Delete MAXIMO.ear from /installedApps, both the contents of the directory and the directory itself: 

Windows (locations as above): 

    C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\ctgAppSrv01\installedApps\ctgCell01\MAXIMO.ear


Unix (locations as above): 

    /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/ctgAppSrv01/installedApps/ctgCell01/MAXIMO.ear


   You do not need to delete MXIEHS.ear directory. 

5. Deploy the Maximo enterprise application. If using LDAP server authentication, make sure that the security permissions are set as previously for the MAXIMO Enterprise Application. 

6. Synchronize nodes. System Administration > Nodes, check the node to synchronize, then click the Synchronize button. 
[Use Full resynchronize if you have made manual file edits on the node. Deploying a Maximo ear does not make manual file edits on the node, so it should not be necessary to use this function. Full synchronize can take a much longer to complete. If Synchronize fails immediately, manual synchronization will be necessary.] 

7. Restart MXServer

Note: In WebSphere 8.0 and 8.5.5 on Windows, the default installation directories may be in C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM rather than C:\Program Files\IBM.
