I want to build a new II Server - so I can try and understand/implement some rules on it.
I built a RHEL 7.3 machine - AS Gui with Basic Development software
I gave the machine 50Gb of disk space and 4Gb of Memory.
To this machine I then added
- a share folder to the host machine
- modified the user tim to be part of VBox group
I have DB2 from the IBM Software Repository login. So to on the RHEL machine I do the following
Lower the SELINUX Settings - and reboot the machine.
- cp /media/sf_Drive/Download/ /tmp
- cd /tmp
- gunzip DB2INST.tar.gz
- tar -xvf DB2
- cd server_
Check the Prerequisites
I then installed a few packages
You go through an Ecipse front end - to do the install.
Set the passwords of the priv accounts and thats it.
su db2inst1 db2sample
You now have a db to play with
This is needed by II - so repeast the db2setup scroll down and choose Db2Client.
IBM Installation Manager
To make our lives easier we will use the IBM Instalation Manager. I downloaded (free) agent.installer.linux.gtk.x86_64_1.8.7000.20170706_2137.zip
Unzip this and Install it (as root)
This installs a copy of Eclipse - it can be accessed from
II uses a Web interface to configure the database and the environment. So (unfortunatly) we need to install this also.
I downloaded 3 files from Passport Advantage
WAS_ND_V8.5_1_OF_3.zip WAS_ND_V8.5_2_OF_3.zip WAS_ND_V8.5_3_OF_3.zip
I then copied and extracted them
cp WAS*.zip /tmp cd /tmp unzip WAS_ND_V8.5_1_OF_3.zip unzip WAS_ND_V8.5_2_OF_3.zip unzip WAS_ND_V8.5_3_OF_3.zip
Now run InstallationManager (as root)
Here you choose
- Select the JNF File
- Select OK
Take Sensible defaults - and the program will install.
Make sure you create a Profile - and that the profile is an Application.
You should also complete the *Post Instalation Tasks" to Ensure your system is working correctly.
Starting and Stopping
There is a GUI !!! Menu option to start and stop this.
But command line (as root)
./IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/startServer.sh server1 ./IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/stopServer.sh server1
The Web Servers default console is
There is also a log in at
Note: You will get a security exception error as there is no Key Certificate. Just add the exception.
Setup Http Apache Server
Login at the main page https://myii:9043/ibm/console/logon.jsp
and Navigate to
- Server Types
- Web Servers
Now in the RHS Window
At this point I snapshot the VM and then start the process again.
Copy the Source Files
cp /media/sf_tim/Documents/EIA/EIASW/IS_ID_INSIGHT_V8.1_FOR_LINUX_X64_ML.tar /tmp cd /tmp gunzip IS*.tar.gz tar -xvf IS.tar
