(Workaround) Enable discovery of WebSphere Network Deployments

The default WebSphere profile discovery is done by looking at registry entries.  Specifically, the WebSphere Management Packs check the registry of each user for an entry:

Software\IBM\WebSphere Application Server

 Unfortunately, this is a problem on Windows for the Network Deployment of WebSphere because the registry key is

Software\IBM\WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment

What to do?   Well, there are two options:

  1. Use the PowerShell-based discovery
  2. Create a new registry entry

For the later option, simply create a new registry key with the name Software\IBM\WebSphere Application Server. In it, duplicate the contents of the Network Deployment entry like the image below (click to expand).  The registry entry is a pointer to where the WebSphere MP discovery should look for the WebSphere installation.

  • Thank you for sharing this. Is there any planned support for WebSphere clustering?
