#500 JCS First Steps...


JCS is available now on

As you can see, it includes IaaS and DB CS.

Install Steps

Install of JCS requires an instance of DB CS.
Storage is also required for DB CS and JCS.

Create Storage

Get X-Auth-Token and X-Storage-Url via REST

curl -v -s -X GET -H "X-Storage-User: Storage- yourIdentityDomain:yourUser" -H "X-Storage-Pass: yourPwd"
Create DB & JCS Storage containers using the X-Storage-Url and X-Auth-Token

curl -v -s -X PUT -H "X-Auth-Token: X-Auth-Token" https://X-Storage-URL/myDBContainer

curl -v -s -X PUT -H "X-Auth-Token: X-Auth-Token" https://X-Storage-URL/myJCSContainer

Create DB CS Instance

Look at the security application - NCJCS/1/sys_dblistener

This is self-explanatory -

The second rule allows ssh access from the wls vm to the DB machine -

Check out the JCS Console

Check out the Administration tab -

Click on Topology -

Click on the hamburger menu to the right -
