II9, alas is just not a 1 product install. It needs at least 3 other products.
- IBM Installation Manager
- WebSphere HTTP Server
- II 9.0.1
This hassle was rather unexpected and has caused me some issues - but this is how we are going to go about it.
This installs a Gui (Eclipse) manager on your machine, You first need to go and find and download a product called IBM Installation Manager at the time it was 1.8.6.
You need to go through Fix-Central, and then taken the http option... I am running on a Linux X86_64 machine (so make sure you take that).
Please note: Your location will for sure be different.
I renamed the file to be IBM_Install_Manager_X86_64.zip
These are the steps
sudo bash cd /tmp mkdir IM cd IM cp ~/IBM_Install_Manager_X86_64.zip unzip IBM_Install_Manager_X86_64 ./install
Simple setup - I think I took all the defaults.
It will restart the Instalation Manager software - I then exited.
I have already documented this - so I will not duplicate.
You may be wondering why we need an HTTP Server for II - and indeed I thought the same thing.
Well - II uses it for it's Rule configuration. And without it you would have to do everything via QSL - and that assumes you know how to set up the Rules.
So you 1000% need a WebServer. I fear that as IBM Loves Java Web Engines so much, you probably can not swap out to TomCat, but I have not looked at that possiility.
So how do we get HTTP Server. Shock surprise ... it is a free product.
As root start IBM Instalation Manager and then
- Add Repository
- Enter this URL
You need your IBM Username and ID - but as it is a free product anyone can get this.
Next you Press Install, and the install Process should begin.
I again used sensible defaults.
##Configuring IHS (Ibm Http Server)
Go to path where IHS is installed
sudo bash cd /opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin
Execute apachectl command to start the web server
As my (virtual Machine) is not having a good IP Address, I got an error. So
Find the line Listen 80 and (in my case) Listen 127.0.0.1:80
Try and start it again
No error so open a web browser and go to
I have downloaded the file.
su db2inst1 cd /tmp mkdir ii9 cd ii9 cp /media/sf_timothyhseed/Downloads/IDENTITY_INSIGHT_V9.0_LINUX_X64_M.tar.gz . tar -rzvf IDENTITY_INSIGHT_V9.0_LINUX_X64_M.tar.gz
All pretty standard stuff so far....
You should have DB2 client already installed...
but you need an extra ENV Settting
And place this in the file (assuming standard Install)
I now navigate to /tmp/ii9/rh50_x64_gcc/Install/Disk1/InstData/VM
#YOU NEED TO BE db2inst1 else this will fail ./ISII_900_linux_x64.bin
- IBM DB2 Universal Database
- Pressed Return
Verify All the Db Settings then
- Create tables automatically
- Fully Qualified Name ... localhost
- Then I took the default ports.
