When you need to do a Node Synchronization.
Sometimes a manual node synchronization is necessary.
1. On the Node you want to synchronize with the WAS Deployment Manager (WAS Admin Console), open up a cmd prompt and navigate to the “BIN” directory. For example: D:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\bin
2. Run the syncNode.bat batch file with the Deployment Manager Server Name and Port: > syncNode.bat [DMGR Server Name] 8879
3. You will be prompted for credentials, so be prepared to put those in and click ok to continue the sync.
4. Once completed, start the Node and the Server services on the node.
