How do I register and deploy applications(.war and .ear) at any other path than ias/APPS directory. When am trying to access the application after the creation of .war file(in a direcotry other than <iplanet install dir>/iAS6/ias/APPS ) on a diff directory and deploying to the server, I found that it is still expecting the files to be under the ias/APPS directory which they are not. How do I keep my application(.war and any other files) away from ias/APPS.
This is essential cos, we already have a complete directory structure for our appliation and this is a migration proof-of-concept that we are trying to acheive. We cannot re-build the package under ias directory.
suggestions ?
(note: I have tried changing the path on the deploy tool, options ..but doesnt work)
thanks
Raj

our production move is highly controlled and we may not be able to run deply tools from commandline or GUI. We just package everything and put on the box. I'd like to know if and how I can package DD(deplyment desc) other files(which ones?)to move from windows to Unix.
Also, how do I get my kregedit values from windows to Unix without running the tool on unix?
(again, we may not manually edit file on unix..so my question is how I extract the kreg file from windows..which is our dev)
Thanks for all your help
Raj

As far as I know who cannot place your applications anywhere but under APPS. The deployment mechanism is theoretically supposed to be a "black box". iAS assumes that it has complete control over its deployment space.
You could try to workaround this with hard/soft symlinks, but I make no promises.
The kregedit problem is easier to solve. Just do a kreg -save on the source iAS and kreg -load on the target box (after replacing any references to hostnames and IPs).
I'd generally suggest that you are not in a good situation. A deployment team that has such limited access to the deployment environment is not in a good position to succeed.

All the applications in iAS will be deployed under ../ias/APPS directory. and as far as i know there is no way you can dep-loy app to other directory.
If you want you can change "NASApp"
